Description

Busby’s Last Crusade is the never to be forgotten fable of Manchester United’s rise from the ashes of Munich in 1958 to the European Cup win 10 years later … and the humble Scot who led them there. With words from best-selling author Jeff Connor and over 200 images, many of them new to the public, this is one man’s search for his personal Holy Grail, and his determination to get there.

This is not a eulogy for Sir Matt Busby. As Connor points out his roles as a club director after 1968 will always be questioned and that King Arthur would never have succeeded without his knights: Duncan Edwards, Roger Byrne, Bobby Charlton, George Best, Denis Law and, above all, Jimmy Murphy. All of these, and others, lighten the pages of a book certain to be seen by fans everywhere as a permanent memoir of an unforgettable era.
