The Official Arsenal Opus tells the story of Arsenal Football Club, focusing on the Highbury years from 1913 to 2006 and the move to Emirates Stadium. This monumental work is divided into eras covering all the key players and managers who have shaped the development of Arsenal into one of the world's most famous clubs. Herbert Chapman's team won a hat-trick of championship titles in the 1930s, part of a glorious period which set the benchmark for such great managers as Tom Whittaker, Bertie Mee, George Graham and, most spectacularly of all, Arsène Wenger.
The history of Arsenal FC has never been told in such depth, with so many exclusive interviews nor with such stunning imagery. We have scoured private collections and photographic agency archives for rare and previously unseen images, commissioned some of the finest writers and best photographers, and interviewed Gunners greats in order to create the ultimate Arsenal tome.
