An entertaining collection of extraordinary but true tales from over a century of the Ashes, cricket's most famous international contest. The book contains episodes from all of the most famous series', including the controversial 1932-33 Bodyline series; England's momentous victory in the coronation year of 1953; their dramatic last-minute win following a freak rainstorm that flooded the Oval in 1968; Beefy's Ashes of 1981; and the plague of injuries that forced out all but four of England's original sixteen-man squad in 1994. Great bowlers and batsmen alike are all featured, whether Aussie or Pom, from W.G. Grace to Shane Warne. This year's Ashes (2009) are to take place in England - the first test starts on July 8th in Cardiff (a new venue), while the second, third, fourth and fifth tests will be held at Lords, Edgbaston, Headingley and the Oval respectively. With the England team once again in good form, a solid captain in Andrew Strauss (which also leaves Kevin Pieterson to concentrate on his superb batting), and Australia not quite as strong since Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne and Justin Langer's retirement, it promises to be an exciting and closely-fought series. This summer the nation will once again take test cricket to its heart - all the more so since the collapse of Stanford's 20/20.
