I don't know if Swedish writer Per Olof Sundman is available in English but he has sure written some awesome books. Expedition is inspired by Henry Stanley's last expedition to Africa (a kind of ironic look at it). The Flight of an Eagle is about Swedish engineer Solomon August Andree and his two companions who tried to reach the North Pole on a balloon in the end of 19th century and failed. It's one of my all-time favourite books.
In a way he is more of an existential writer than historical one as the meaning of these books transcends the events and times described but the history research is very precise too and the level of realism is excellent.
Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
