Book review: A Photographic History of British Football

The book tracks the history of British football from the origins of the game in the 19th Century through to the 2014 World Cup. The book focuses on the top divisions and FA Cup competitions in England and Scotland. The chapters are generally split up into decades, although some chapters cover longer periods of time. The start of the chapters feature a timeline of key events during the period covered by the chapter. The book contains lots of information and features profile boxes of leading players and managers. I enjoyed reading about the history and development of the game and would strongly recommend the book to all football fans.
