They Took The Lead - Centenary Edition


The 2005 original publication of this book - the story of Orient players around the First World War and their heroism - moved and interested in equal measure.


Now, Steve Jenkins has revised and updated his book to 260 pages, with nine additional chapters and an extra 80 images, many of which are in colour. This special centenary edition brings this remarkable story to life and demonstrates Clapton Orient's major contribution to the Footballers' Battalion. New material also shows how the O's service is now being remembered 100 years later - locally, around the country and abroad.
