Two New Books from The Arsenal History

A bit like buses you wait for a book to come out and two turn up at the same time. Which is why we have been quiet on this site, as we’ve been so busy researching, writing, editing and compiling Arsenal History from all angles since the start of the year.

Arsenal: The Complete Record is available in two varieties: Standard edition and Deluxe edition and also is available with an optional limited edition “Invincibles” or “Anfield 89” Subbuteo set.

This is in addition to the Royal Arsenal – Champions Of The South book which was published earlier this year and is available here: The Champions of the South

To be honest we assumed any new revisions of history would be the sole domain of the Royal Arsenal tome, and as you read that story you will see how the Plumstead era history has been be-devilled by mythology, which we have successfully debunked.

However, much to our surprise we have found a previously undiscovered major fact about the only promotion that Arsenal achieved in 1904 which appears in the Complete Book. It changes the very identity of the manager who was in charge when Arsenal achieved their first and only promotion to the top flight. We’ll be publishing a blog in the next couple of days which explains how and why.

Critics and Readers Comments 

Comment and critique of the Royal Arsenal book that was preliminary issued in June 2018 has been excellent thus far.

There’s probably 4 or 5 truly fantastic all time Arsenal books. But just finished this newly released book on Royal Arsenal. Absolute definitive tome with a lot of researched info that’s never been researched previously. A must for fans on the history of the club.

Harry  De’Giovanni

Just finished reading the champions of the South book. Could not recommend it highly enough. Was amazing to read into the early days of the club. No other book I have read has gone into as much detail

Gary the Gooner

Finished reading this superb book at the weekend on the origins of our great club.The detail is incredible  &  must have put untold hours researching it & has done an excellent job editing it. A must for any fan who loves our history.

Gary Jones
