Football and the First World War

I am currently writing a book on Football and the First World War based on the article of the same name on this website.

I am very keen to contact any football fans who have information about players who joined the army during the First World War.

Please contact me at


See reviews of Rob Cavallini's The Wanderers FC, and Around The World In 95 Games.

This section is devoted to the great players who have brought individual flare and skill to the game and whose legacy is remembered by football fans everywhere.  Perhaps you have stories about these players you would like to share with us?  Or maybe you would like to see certain other players included?  Get in touch...
