As well as vivid accounts of individual games (from the first tournament in Uruguay in 1930 to the most recent, and controversial, final in Paris), there are many behind-the-scenes stories and character sketches of the great managers and players whose names, both through success and failure, will forever be synonymous with one of the world's greatest sporting events.
