The story of the Superga air disaster in which 18 players of the all-conquering AC Torino team perished, along with 13 other passengers, including their manager, coach and three well-known sports journalists. Two days after the crash, Torino were declared Italian champions before the club's reserve and youth team players completed their fixtures, topping the table by five points to win a 5th consecutive Scudetto. Published to coincide with the 75th anniversary, this book draws on testimonies from colleagues and team-mates who were left behind to provide the emotional story of the rise and tragic fall of one of Italian football's greatest-ever teams.
