    An Intriguing Novel

    This book has no "hidden" meaning, but it is a good read. The book follows the experiences of the members of a Montana high school football team, which had an extraordinary season during its members' senior year.

    The setting is WWII, and all the members of the team end up in the armed forces. The protagonist is assigned to a special unit to write about those experiences as a means of bringing the war "home" to the average American. Each piece is to feature one of the members of the "Supreme Team" as it was called because of it's season of complete victory.

    The author is knowledgable about WWII history and describes a variety of theaters in the war with historical interest, as well as the fate of the individual team members.

    The book has a novel twist at the ending, for which the reader is not fully prepared, as was the author's intent. The plot is simple but the conclusion is tricky. The focus of the novel is its title, i.e. the Eleventh Man. Who was he? What happened to him?

    It's a good summer reading book, without a lot of subtle meaning.
