The story of the 1958 Munich air crash, which killed eight players from the Manchester United football team, is not just about the terrible crash, but also the story of its immediate aftermath and its effect on the city of Manchester.

About the Author:
David Hall has been a lifelong Manchester United fan, and was eleven when the Munich air disaster happened. He has been a TV producer for over thirty years and made many television series with Fred Dibnah for the BBC. He is also the author of Fred, the definitive biography of Fred Dibnah, published by Bantam Press.
Review:
"Not only the best book on Munich, but one of the very best books on the United. I presumed there was nothing new to say on the crash, but David Hall proved me completely wrong. It's a totally refreshing account, and Hall captures brilliantly the atmosphere of Manchester in those winter days of 1958." -- Michael Crick "Almost everything we've ever read about Munich has been from the point of view of the victims and the survivors - so David Hall's book is a welcome and fascinating record of what it was like to be an 11-year-old Mancunian whose team had its heart ripped out on a foreign airfield. It is the mass of telling detail which makes this book so interesting... intimate and personal." -- Chris Maume * The Independent * "Where David Hall's deeply humbling book differs, is that he offers a supporter's perspective of one of the most intimate tragedies of post-war Britain, one which united an entire nation, irrespective of one's club loyalties, in grief. [A] heart-rending tribute to a side that had become great ambassadors for club and country - both on and off the pitch." -- Tom Richmond * Yorkshire Post * "Fitting tribute to a sport's tragic loss" * Coventry Telegraph * "Excellent" -- Steve Simpson * Blackpool Gazette *
