The Collingwood teams of 1927-30 wrote their names into football folklore when they won four successive VFL Premierships. No other club has done it before, or since. The were so good, so strong, so seemingly invincible that they became known simply, and collectively, as The Machine.

This book takes you into the dressing rooms to see how those flags were won. It takes you inside the club to reveal the dramas, sensations and tragedy that surrounded the victories. And it takes you behind the stats and figures to tell the personal stories of the Magpie heroes who made it all happen.

Domination, drama and history. This is the story of The Machine.
