The remarkable story of Liverpool FC's greatest ever league title triumph - 1946 - 47.
The first post-war Football League campagin of 1946/47 was the longest and most tumultuous ever known. For Liverpool FC it was the ultimate triumph against adversity; a First Division Championship won in a style that was to set a precedent for future Anfield success.
Amid the bleak austerity of a war-ravaged nation; food shortages, fuel and housing shortages, and the worst winter ever recorded, George Kay's side brought some much needed cheer to their long suffering fans with a title charge that defied the odds and silenced all those who had written the Reds off before a ball had even been kicked.
The season had everything; a ground breaking tour of North America; league debuts' for Billy Liddell and Bob Paisley; the sensational signing of Albert Stubbins; Jackie Balmer's amazing hat-trick of hat-tricks; long queues and massive crowds; the threat of a players' strike; quagmire pitches; frozen pitches; a thrilling FA Cup run; the famous goal in the snow; squad rotation; an unprecedented fixture pile up and a nail-biting championship finale that wasn't resolved until the middle of June.
When the chaos was over and the dust finally settled it was Liverpool, the so called 'Crazy Gang', who were crowned champions for a fifth time int he club's history. Neither before or since has league title glory been achieved in such remarkable circumstances.
Placing Liverpool's title triumph in it's wider social context, with match-by-match analysis, player profiles and a host of rare photographs, At The End of the Storm tells the in-depth story of this almost forgotten feat for the very first time.
"These were true footballing heroes of the classic mould..... It truly was a classic season .. one that I believe rates amongst the very best of the 18 Championships our great Club has known. This book tells their story. It is a story worth telling. Stephen Done - Curator Liverpool FC Museum
"If ever a season in the illustrious history of Liverpool FC deserves a book then it is this. Recognition for what the team of 1946/47 achieved is long overdue. At the End of the Storm is a fitting tribute and a must-read for every Liverpudlian - whatever their age." Tony Barrett, The Times.
