To mark this year's World Cup, we've cut the price for our ebook, The Great Game: Football Through The Ages by up to 50%. In Britain it now costs £1.02, €1.50 and in the United States it'll set you back $1.72.

The Great Game is a collection of great writing from the History Today archive about the world's most popular sport. Read about about how the rules of the football were forged in the public schools of Victorian Britain; discover how the game was used as a propaganda tool by Nazi Germany; meet Algeria's "football revolutionaries" and Stalin's "soccer soldiers"; find out the high stakes of supporting your team in Franco's Spain; wince at the cavalier attitude towards stadium safety that once characterised the English game; and revisit one of the more sordid moments in Scottish football history.

All of our ebooks are available to buy in the Amazon Kindle store. They are designed to work with the Kindle, and are also available on iPhone, iPad, PC, Android and Windows Phone; simply download the appropriate Kindle App for your device.
