Jack and Bobby Charlton both played prominent roles in the finest hour of English soccer, the 1966 World Cup triumph. Each played for the dominant club of their era, and summed up the style of their respective teams. Bobby was at Manchester Utd during their glory days under Sir Matt Busby, while Jack came to professional soccer late, working in a coal mine before Leeds signed him. The two retired from soccer in the same year, and since, their relationship has been strained. This book will investigate the reasons for this, including in-depth interviews with many people the two have been in contact with over the years.
