Author:    Christopher Douglas


In the Long Room at Lords, Douglas Jardine's portrait hangs below Bradman's. They were great adversaries; as Douglas describes them: "the master strategist and the game's pre-eminent genius". Jardine is still touted as England's toughest captain, best known as skipper during the 1932-33 Ashes tour of Australia - the Bodyline series.
The book is a thorough biography; according to 'The Times': "A tautly written account of a man who will forever be misunderstood, making it prescribed reading for those who area curious about that bodyline series."
