At The Football Ground we are constantly researching and writing about football history that has already been made, as well as searching for links to breaking football news.
We are identifying articles, lists of top football books and resources all the time - especially in the field of football history. Independent site football book reviews is a great source of the latest books to be published.
This process includes finding and reviewing relevant football books which are available through amazon as both hard-copy and/or Kindle items. By clicking through to items via this website - available to all users for free - The Football Ground earns a small royalty to support its research programme.

First Football Histories
The Arsenal FC story is the first in the First Football Histories series of books from The Football Ground – available in hard copy and digital formats – featuring concise histories of football clubs, competitions and countries.
The books aim to tell the key football stories, including brief geographies of the places concerned, as well as major, global historical events that were taking place at the same time.
Easily-affordable, these books make ideal introductions to football history for new football fans and older fans wanting to quickly check their facts. They are independent, unofficial football histories and are not endorsed, authorised, licensed or in any other way approved by any club or other third-party.
Unlike other football history books, the First Football Histories series will be updated at the end of each season and so will never fall out-of-date.
The Arsenal FC story
This book is not intended to be a comprehensive history of Arsenal FC from training ground to trophy cabinet. It is written as a story for the fans – a narrative of characters, scenes and events that provides an introduction to some key moments in the club’s history; from their humble origins in Woolwich as ‘Dial Square’ in 1886 to its status as one of the English Premier League's leading football clubs.
With their pioneering approach being coupled to the insight and imagination of a few key individuals along the way, the club has made the long journey from an armaments factory in South-East London to the entertaining of millions of football fans worldwide: a truly global brand.
Aimed at teenage readers and above, it is hoped that, as the flow of history weaves its way in and out of times and places, readers will step off at different points and explore more about football clubs, competitions, countries and players for themselves - as well as the general social and political history providing the backdrop to each tale.
You can find reviews of this book on amazon as well as on the Independent football writing site football book reviews.
Just search for the title or Mark Rasdall in any amazon store and the titles will appear. You can download the digital version to a Kindle or Kindle app on PC, iPad, iPhone and other devices.
