4.0 étoiles sur 5 A myth-buster! 10 janvier 2006
Par Erkan Saka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Simon Kuper maintains his easy-flowing style and investigative journalism concerning his topic. I was already suspicious about the 'Dutch tolerance', and this book can be read to shatter all there is...

However, this is not really a book on football or Ajax. Yes, Mr. Kuper is the best to connect football and politics but this time there is more politics than soccer. And it seems that the whole book is organized to shatter a myth in which Ajax is a small part... Anyway, I did not feel any regret to read the book, i am just warning you about what to expect...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dutch complacency exposed 25 février 2012
Par Mark Epps - Publié sur Amazon.com
In his previous work, such as the magisterial "Football against the Enemy", and in his newspaper columns collected in "The Football Men", the FT journalist Simon Kuper demonstrates both his deep knowledge of the game and an intimate familiarity with the British, Dutch and German national characters that must be unparalleled among sports writers.

I have read many books about football and many about the war. This is one of the best on either subject. "Football Against the Enemy", along with Nick Hornby's "Fever Pitch", founded a genre - that devoted to the consumption of sport, rather than the sport itself. Having thus established himself as a "sporting anthropologist", Kuper is uniquely equipped to explore tyranny from the point of view of sport.

As Kuper himself points out in the first chapter of "Ajax, the Dutch, the War", the myth that the Netherlands had heroically done all it could to resist German barbarism has long since been discarded by the Dutch, though interestingly it lives on in Israel. He rejects however the idea that there was nothing that could have been done in the face of such a brutal occupaton by comparison with Denmark and Norway. The stark fact is that the Netherlands lost three quarters of its Jews, largely rounded up by Dutch officials and policemen, while the occupied Scandinavians and even Germany's Italian and Bulgarian allies refused to heed German demands for mass deportation. In his condemnation of Amsterdam's present complacent attitude to the recent past Kuper's tone, especially in the final chapter, betrays a bitterness spared towards the rival city of Rotterdam.

Other chapters give interesting insights, such as the one devoted to THAT salute, the Hitlergruß given by the England players to the Berlin crowd before an international match played a year before war broke out. Our reactions to the infamous photograph are of course determined by our knowledge of what happened in the years that followed, but at the time it did not provoke much reaction, and was seen simply as good ambassadorship. A lesson learned by reading this chapter is that the Nazis were at the time far from obsessed with winning, were in awe of England's renown for good sporting behaviour and wanted to acquire the same reputation.

This is a book about football and it's a book about the war. You need to be interested in both, but if you are it's an engrossing read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Eliminate "Ajax" from the title 12 juin 2012
Par Ted Stimson - Publié sur Amazon.com

The link to football is minimal. This book focuses much more on the Dutch, the war, and the treatment of Jews than it does on football or Ajax. More importantly, it's just not that interesting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A really great book 5 avril 2008
Par Jack Peachy - Publié sur Amazon.com
From the title, I thought this would be a simplistic story of a European football team, and would be mildly interesting. I found it to be one of the best histories I have ever come across. Not only are the stories spellbinding, but I have never come across any other book which has covered the material, and I have read hundreds of books on WW II. To top it off, I had even previously heard (and believed) all of the stories which the author shows to be myths. I want more !!!!

This is a must for anyone interested in football and in its historical roots. Insights into Europe in the pre war and war era. Written without sentiment, it provides seldom made connections into football in an historical context. Applause for Simon Kuper
