    Arsenal: The Complete Record is the definitive account of one of English Football's pioneering institutions. Collated by Josh James, Andy Kelly and Mark Andrews, this exhaustive study details every game, campaign, player and manager in the Gunners' storied history up to and including the 2017/18 season.

    Formed by munitions workers in 1886 in Woolwich, the club moved from south east London to Highbury in the capital's north in 1913 and established themselves as one of the game's giants following the appointment of the legendary Herbert Chapman in 1925. An unprecedented five league titles were captured in the 1930s: two before Chapman’s untimely death in 1934 and three under the stewardships of Joe Shaw and George Allison.

    Other managerial greats followed: Bertie Mee won the club’s first league and cup double in 1971, while former player George Graham achieved two league titles, a cup double and a European Cup Winners’ Cup crown in the 1980s and 1990s.

    Upon his appointment in 1996, Arsène Wenger switched the focus from defence to attack, and his brilliant Arsenal teams embodied the Premier League’s transformative influence on English football. Two league and cup doubles ignited his reign before the 2003/04 pinnacle, where a team spearheaded by Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Viera went an entire season unbeaten. In 2017, with Wenger still at the helm, Arsenal became the most successful club in FA Cup history with their thirteenth success.

    This record of one of English football’s great names charts every moment since 1886, including season by season accounts of every campaign, player profiles and every conceivable detail of the Gunners’ illustrious history. This is an indispensable addition to the library of every Arsenal fan.

    Josh James said: 'This was a project I’ve wanted to get involved with for years. I’ve been immersed in Arsenal stats and records ever since I started working at the club in 2001, and being able to pull it all together for this book has been both a pleasure and a privilege. Mark and Andy are the absolute authority when it comes to the club’s history, and the stories they have unearthed really bring the whole volume to life.'
