Reviews and Recommendations

We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Harold Larwood from the world's leading experts.

Daniel Norcross The single most exciting moment in English cricket was almost certainly the Bodyline series of 1932-33. To give you some idea of just how exciting, it almost led to the cessation of diplomatic relations between England and Australia. It went right to the very top. So my second book is a biography of the English hero of Bodyline, Harold Larwood by Duncan Hamilton. (Source)
