    eBook Nigel McCrery · The Final Season MOBI å The Final PDF/EPUB ² · final download, season pdf, The Final free, The Final Season ePUBThis is a collection of stories about mainly professional footballers who fought and mostly died in the First World War We tend to think of vanity and lax morals as elements of modern society but tucked away in this book of heroic actions are little insights into the life of a superstar footballer 100 years ago such as the player who was noted for his passing ability but ' could never pass a mirror' and the larger than life character who would travel to all away matches a day early to enjoy the delights of another of his female fansHowever the real reason I am writing this review is to honour the sheer bravery exhibited by so many of these men not just the footballers in this atrocious war As an example I would like to mention William Angus who insisted on crawling out to within yards of the enemy trenches to bring back a wounded comrade Having lifted his comrade up he was spotted and throughout the journey back he was targeted with bullets and hand grenades Fal

    eBook Nigel McCrery · The Final Season MOBI å The Final PDF/EPUB ² · final download, season pdf, The Final free, The Final Season ePUBMuseums always have interesting books They have books that you can't seem to find anywhere else and ones that you wouldn't normally look for A few weeks ago I was traveling through France with some close friends along what was one hundred years ago the Western Front We stopped at the Theipval Memorial a giant structure which memorializes the British dead of the Somme Offensive of 1916 who have no known grave After gaping at the memorial upon which are inscribed some 72000 names we made our way to the gift shop One of my friends bought this book for me and I felt a duty to immediately read it My friend is English so soccer errfootball is in his blood I have become uite the fan myself although I admittedly don't know much of the sport's history This book the Final Season was a short but surprisingly clever read on the footballers who fought and in many instances died in World War I As I read this boo

    eBook Nigel McCrery · The Final Season MOBI å The Final PDF/EPUB ² · final download, season pdf, The Final free, The Final Season ePUBThe Final Season tells the story of professional football players joining the BEF after the outbreak of war and how some of these brave men conducted themselves in the Great War while also being somewhat of a narrative as to how the war panned out The style of writing is very pleasant which makes it perfect for a uick read about two of my main interests the Great War and football The best thing about the book for me was that within a page or two i got the feeling of having a connection with some of the remarkable characters like the great LR Roose which story is fairly well known with football enthousiasts in the book All in all a great little read I can thorougly advice anyone who likes either football the Great War or like myself both

    eBook Nigel McCrery · The Final Season MOBI å The Final PDF/EPUB ² · final download, season pdf, The Final free, The Final Season ePUBGood book as it written towards the end perhaps it is the very nature of football a competition in which two opposing sides strive against each other for victory that give their stories such fascination and pathos In the end for all that is vast ugly and cruel what is war but another such competition? We instinctively recoil from the fact that these men in the prime of life were forced to abandon a competitive sport which at its best can build bonds of community and humanity in order to take part in a conflict that did nothing but tear such bonds apart
