Tales Of The Tartan Army

by Black, Ian

Condition: Very Good

UK: Mainstream Publishing, 1998. Soft cover. Very Good. 5" x 7.75. p/b 189 pages, condition is very good. Tales of the Tartan Army is a glimpse into the occasionally surreal and often all-too-real ranks of a platoon of footsoldiers in the great and bravehearted Army's search to find a team to follow which is worthy of their support. These are the rampant guys and rare gals that you see screaming their allegiance in stadiums around the world, from Mexico to Croatia, via Iceland and Spain, usually imprisoned in a postage-stamp-sized section of the ground behind razor-wire, snarling security forces and killer dogs. These are the people who make Scotland famous the world over for their warmth, generosity and capacity for strong drink. They'll make you laugh and maybe once or twice they'll make you shed a furtive tear. Their clan slogan is 'We'll support you ever more! F*** the score!'. And once you've read about them, you'll want to join them. You'll be welcome.
