Red Men is a unique and exhaustively researched history of Liverpool Football Club. The key figures of the club are featured, including the side's first great manager, Tom Watson; Elisha Scott, the darling of the Kop in the 1920s; and, of course, Bill Shankly, who won that elusive first FA Cup in 1965.

The recent tragedies that have shaped the club's contemporary identity are covered here, as are the new Continental influences at Liverpool and, of course, the glory of Istanbul in 2005 and the return to the club, as manager, of Kenny Dalglish in 2011.

Red Men is the definitive history of a remarkable football club from its formation in 1892 to the present day, told in the wider context of the social and cultural development of the city of Liverpool and its people.
