1946. The Second World War is over. It took time and struggle to kick-start League football back to normal. 1946-47 became the first modern season. Footballers emerged from the perils of combat - escaping from torpedoed ships or burning bombers - to entertain the unruly, angry crowds of austerity Britain. The dread winter made the 1946-47 season the longest ever. The players called strikes, faced government bans and still conjured up fiery matches and a Championship decider in mid-summer - on 14 June! The football itself is vividly brought to life with humour, passion and poetry. The evocative sounds of the time mingle with the strong, clear voices and actions of the main personalities - Tommy Lawton, Stan Matthews, and the rest of a 'true classic breed'.
