From the publisher:
Born out the docks in the Victorian East End, Millwall and West Ham United's rivalry precedes the formation of both football clubs. The two areas of East London viewed each other with suspicion and discontent - something that only heightened after Millwall's move south of the River Thames in 1910.
Meeting over 100 times in their history, this derby, regarded as the fiercest and most violent in England, has been littered with controversy, disorder and foul play - football games have occasionally broke out too.
Forged From The Docks tells the story of the social history behind the rivalry and how it's evolved into the derby we all know today.
