In his time working for the Daily Sketch and Daily Mail, Brian Scovell probably reported on more Test matches and more international football matches than any other English sports writer. This fascinating, amusing and finally very moving memoir is filled with hundreds of anecdotes and insights into top sports personalities and other public figures. And he has Goering to thank for the way his life has turned out. Following a German bombing raid on the Isle of Wight when he was a child, Brian spent two years in hospital listening to match commentaries on the radio and reading the leading sports writer of the day, Tom Phillips. While in that hospital bed, Brian decided on his future career. Thank You, Hermann Goering contains dozens of previously untold stories about, among others, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Princess Diana, Brian Lara, Enoch Powell and Alan Sugar.
