Description

Eric Liddell, the Scottish 400m Olympic champion from the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris was immortalized in the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire. His story, however, goes far beyond the restrictions of a 2-hour movie. Julian Wilson's vivid biography recounts not only the highs and lows of Liddell's athletics career, including his controversial decision never to run on a Sunday, but also his life after the Olympics as a missionary in war-torn China. The book draws upon interviews with Liddell's surviving family and friends, and includes some fascinating anecdotes, reminiscences, extracts from his letters and a number of rare photographs.
