My Manchester United years : the autobiography by Bobby Charlton( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Bobby Charlton tells for the first time about his career playing for the club he loves. This book has it all: the horror of Munich, the thrill of winning the 1968 European Cup final, league triumphs and cup final losses. Bobby Charlton is Manchester United through and through. He was a member of the original 'Busby Babes' and has devoted his career to the club, playing in 754 games over 17 years. During that period he won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law, suffered devastating defeats and was involved in one of the greatest football tragedies of all time. Here, for the very first time, he tells the story of those United years. With his beloved Reds he tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three first division championships and in 1968 he reached the pinnacle of club success, winning the European Cup. Inevitably, such highs are balanced with no less dramatic lows, such as the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss which followed only weeks after the horrors of the Munich Air disaster, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan. He is one of the true gentlemen of football and the legacy that Bobby Charlton gives to United is beyond compare

Forever boys : the days of citizens and heroes by James Lawton( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sometimes you love a soccer team not only for their strengths, the splendor of their play, and the appealing thrust of their character, but also for the haunting possibility that their best hopes may never be fulfilled. This has rarely been demonstrated so vividly as by the Manchester City team, who briefly, but unforgettably, illuminated the late sixties. And no one was more caught up in their struggles and their triumphs than James Lawton, a young sportswriter starting out on a career that would take him to all the great events of world sports. Yet still, fifty years after Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison began to shape the brilliant team, Lawton counts watching their rise to glory as one of the most exciting times of his professional life. Francis Lee, Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee--Lawton goes back to these heroes, interviewing all the main players and characters who are still alive, and vividly brings to life the story of that City team which, with such wonderful panache and freedom, won the first division title, the FA Cup, the League Cup, and the European Winners' Cup between 1967 and 1970. This is not just the story of one team. It's a broader one of how sports can so often mirror the exaltation and despair of the real world, how competitions carry the athletes who participate--and sometimes even those who merely watch--to moments that will claim a permanent place in their hearts."--provided by publisher

1966 : my world cup story by Bobby Charlton( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AUTOBIOGRAPHY: SPORT. What does it mean to be forever defined by one moment, unable to escape the hold it commands over you? In other people's eyes? In your own imagination? How does a life fully lived come back to one single instance, one day when you stood side-by-side with your best friends united in a single aim, in front of a watching nation? In 1966 England won the World Cup for the first - and quite possibly the last - time. Sir Bobby Charlton, England's greatest ever player, was there on the pitch. This is what he saw; this is what he heard; this is what he felt

Semantic Interoperability in Distributed Planning. Track 1: C2 Concepts, Theory, and Policy( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The USAF Command and Control (C2) is undergoing a transformation from a co-located, theater-centric process to one that is worldwide and distributed. A key challenge for this transformation to Globally-Linked Air and Space Operations Centers is developing the ability to collaboratively plan and execute operation with multiple cooperating command centers. This paper describes an in-house program underway at the USAF Research Laboratory Information Directorate that is developing technologies to support the concepts of Network Centric Operations. In particular, research is presented that extends the Object Model Working Group's Core Plan Representation (CPR) framework utilizing semantic technologies to capture planning experiences in both human and machine-readable form. A key feature of these extensions is common, interoperable plan representation amongst the distributed heterogeneous planning agents. Semantic interoperability of the plan representation is critical to support distributed planning. The initial approach to achieving interoperability is a limited taxonomy for describing key plan-related information. The research presented utilizes open standards semantic technology to encapsulate plans as self-describing semantic objects
