Fifty years on, a legend remembers.
Sir Bobby Charlton takes us on a personal journey back to the greatest moment of his life and the nation's greatest sporting achievement- winning the World Cup

About the Author

Having survived the trauma of the Munich air disaster aged just 20, Sir Bobby Charlton played as if every game was for his fallen colleagues, recovering from his injuries to reach the pinnacle for both Manchester United and England. Playing as an attacking midfielder Sir Bobby is regarded as one of the greatest footballers the game has ever seen. During his playing career that spanned twenty years he won three League Championships, the FA Cup, the European Cup and the World Cup. With England he played in four World Cups scoring a then-record 49 goals. He is currently a director of Manchester United.

Reviews

Carefully and lovingly told with deeper layers of reflection and wistfulness. -- Giles Smith * The Times *
It's gripping stuff... This is a mellow book, the product of many years' contemplation, and emotional in a way that may surprise you...He has a wonderful story to tell -- Markus Berkmann * Daily Mail *
Breathtakingly lucid, insistently informative and deeply affecting... It owes much to the presence of that most benign of ghosts, the wonderful James Lawton, who imbues his books not only with an authentic, clear-eyed love of the game but with his gift, spectacular in this particular instance, to bring historic moments into a focus so immediate that one is almost forced to blink * Herald *
Thoughtful and reflective...full of fascinating detail. * Mail On Sunday *
[A] fascinating inside account of what remains the nation's greatest sporting achievement. * Choice Magazine *
