Harold Larwood's own version of the great 1932-1933 Ashes cricket series, with full scores and annotated photographs from his own collection. A cricket classic, first published in 1933.

Harold Larwood was one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time. But this will forever be overshadowed by his role in the cricketing controversy of the century, the Bodyline Affair. It is a dispute that retains its extraordinary potency even though nearly all the participants are now dead. It came close to rupturing cricket; indeed it might have ruptured relations between Britain and Australia. But it was in the nature of cricket that Larwood should eventually settle happily in Australia, the country whose batsmen he once haunted. - Wisden Almanack
