There are few cities anywhere in the world to equal Scotland's biggest city and the extraordinary stories which abound in it. Some of the great tales are about events which occurred in the city many of them within living memory - and others are about fabulous characters who, like these stories, also bound in this most colourful of cities. Great Glasgow Stories II recounts some of the finest great stories, all of which have been freshly researched, bringing to light amazing new facts and accounts of events which occurred in Glasgow and which were to have a worldwide impact. For instance, the foresight and principles of leadership of just one man who got together local boys in a West End church hall was to create the biggest youth movement the world has ever known, an organisation which today has countless thousands of youths as members in every continent on earth. Just who was Scotland's football star? Of course he had to be a Glasgow man but what little is known about this great player who was to score hat-tricks for his country and be one of the big attractions at Ibrox Park, is that his fame lives on as a household name.
