The Times on the Ashes - signed by the editor, Richard Whitehead

England against Australia for the Ashes - it is one of the oldest and greatest rivalries in sport and almost its entire history has been covered in The Times. From Shane Warne's ball of the century in 1993 to Gilbert Jessop's power-crazed hitting at The Oval in 1902; from the infamous Bodyline tour of 1932-33 to England's surrender to the pace of Lillee and Thomson in 1974-75; from Len Hutton's Coronation year triumph in 1953 to the long years of defeat before the Ashes were finally recaptured in 2005.

The Times on the Ashes showcases the great batsmen - Bradman, Hutton, Ponting, Gower, Trumper, Boycott, Greg Chappell; the great bowlers - Trueman, Warne, Larwood, Lillee, Underood, McGrath, Anderson and the great captains - Brearley, Ian Chappell, Vaughan, Armstrong, Jardine, Steve Waugh, Hutton. This unique book also recaptures more than a century of the highs and lows of Ashes cricket through the pages of The Times and features some of the greatest writers in the history of cricket - John Woodcock, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Alan Lee, Gideon Haigh and Mike Atherton to name just a few.
