The original epic Ironwar was between Dave Scott and Mark Allen in 1989. The 2011 book Ironwar by Matt Fitzgerald is an interesting history on the careers of both Scott and Allen. It feels as though Fitzgerald did his homework via magazine articles, books and interviews with anyone and anything he could get his hands on, except Scott and Allen. One can see how he may have taken certain editorial liberties with quotations from the athletes to make the book more exciting which is the cause of the controversy. In any case, it’s still worth a read.
