Final Wicket: Test and First Class Cricketers Killed in the Great War

English | 2015 | ISBN: 1473827140 | 400 Pages | EPUB | 56 MB


While cricket remains a national game today, at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, it was THE national game. Cricketers were the sporting icons of their age, as footballers are today.

When the call to arms was made in 1914 and the years of war that followed, it was answered in droves by young men including Test and First Class cricketers. The machine guns and gas of the Western Front and other theaters did not discriminate and many hundreds of these star performers perished alongside their lesser known comrades.

The author has researched the lives and deaths of over 200 top class cricketers who made the ultimate sacrifice. He includes not just British players but those from the Empire. The enormity of the horror and wholesale loss of life during The Great War is well demonstrated by these moving biographies.
