    Recent events, the death of Bill Shorthouse, the first anniversary of Doog's passing and more recently the Masters Final team, have highlighted an alarming lack in knowledge of the Club (and players) I have followed for over 40 years.
    Is there a book out there covering Wolves more recent history, say since the War, that is both well written, comprehensive and informative? I am not particularly interested in the Club's early days and early 20th century but more the story which led me to supporting Wolves in the 60s. I am also not looking for a book listing dates, matches played, results etc.
    If someone out there can help with this information I would be very grateful.

    Wikipedia is a great online resource. I know its not the same as a book but it is a fantastic library of info

    I think its Dave Instone of the Express & Star who has a series of books in print about Wolves history and events. I've had most of them given to me over the years as presents. All good for what they are.

    Google him and I'm sure you'll find some info.

    For those that have not read it "The Doog" is an excellent read.

    Esp for old farts like me who can relive their childhood whilst reading it.

    It's out of date now, but 'The Wolves' by Martin Swain charts the clubs history right from the start up until 1990 and is an absolute must. Lots of detail, but still very readable. Some great pictures in there as well.

    The Stan Cullis book in MTW's avatar is worth a read as well.

    e-mail Thomas Publications or Breedon Books, they tend to publish most. Dave does most of his through Thomas.
     
  9. Try the second hand book shop in Bath Road. If they have not got the above books they will always search their contacts for one. Have got several old Wolves books that way
