First Football Histories: The Arsenal FC story

The Arsenal FC story is the first in the First Football Histories series of books from The Football Ground. It 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 teenagers 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.

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history books, the First Football Histories series will be updated at the end of each season and so will never fall out-of-date.

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.

Readers in the UK can click on either of these links to purchase digital or print editions directly from amazon.

The print edition is also available from all good bookshops, worldwide.
