Sacrifices by the club and their supporters during the First World War were fearfully destructive, but men like Dan McMichael refused to let the dream die, while visionaries such as the Farmer brothers and Owen Brannigan were busy laying the foundations of a modern-day club. The introduction of Harry Swan and Willie McCartney to Easter Road is well remembered. This third volume abounds in anecdotes of great players, famous officials, and heroic struggles, while important social and political issues relating to the fortunes of Hibernian are skilfully and interestingly interwoven with the text.
