Reviews

All in all this is an absorbing book and a valuable contribution to the game's literature which I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone with an interest in the era. -- Martin Chandler ... sense of cricket continuing, of life returning from the ashes of war, is a theme of the book, although the author is careful not to overplay it... Rowe is no starry-eyed romantic. He views everything with the unsentimental and iconoclastic eye of the historian and is not afraid to challenge received wisdom. -- Richard Lawrence The impressive SportsBooks imprint makes a truly triumphant debut with Marl Rowe's The Victory tests, non-stop insights and revelations on the epic 1945 'Ashes' series which lit up the peace, and a must for oldie cricket nuts of a certain generation. -- Frank Keating The Oldie ...a vivid and passionate account of that extraordinary summer. Combining breathless accounts of the matches with wide ruminations on the game as it was then, Rowe has produced a fascinating book of a golden summer that rivals any of the great Ashes contests. -- James Holland
