The genesis of West Ham United Football Club is probably the most fascinating of any professional side. The team that would become the pride of East London and pioneers of the modern game first came into the world as Thames Ironworks. Its players were the tough hammer-men who burnt and beat rivets into some of the greatest ships ever built, including the mighty HMS Warrior, a seagoing war-machine, which was, like the company that built it and its football club, ahead of its time. This is a tale of how philanthropy, religious beliefs, Corinthian ethics, entrepeneurial enterprise and the enthusiasm of working people for a game made a sporting institution that would come to embody the culture and history of the Docklands.

Building on the success of War Hammers, this book chronicles how the wartime conditions obliged the club to develop the outlook and approach that would give rise to its most successful period (from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s) and how the culture of the current incarnation of West Ham's style and support were established in the dark days of the 1940s. A detailed account of the Hammers' 1940 War Cup victory is included, as well as biographies of most of the players who played for the club between 1939 and 1945. Seminal matches are analyzed together with the power, politics, and intrigue of wartime soccer.
