Cartoonist Bob Bond, who worked for Football Monthly, brings the drama and the humour of the tournament alive, match by match.
His superb penmanship is supplemented by stories from some of the biggest names in Fleet Street who were there.
Patrick Collins, five times Sports Writer of the Year, tells how England manager Alf Ramsey made a secret late night call to a highly distinguished football writer just three days before the Final. On the agenda? The dropping of Jimmy Greaves for Geoff Hurst.
James Lawton, another Sports Writer of the Year, magnificently sets the scene for the tournament, culminating in what Bobby Charlton called ‘the diamond of my days’.
Steve Curry, former chief football writer for the Daily Express, recounts the full emotion and elation of the final itself, revealing how, as a young reporter, he was left in tears as England prevailed in extra time against West Germany.
