Overview

The compelling story of the Green Bay Packers is also the uniquely American story of pro football. Tracing the rise of one of the NFL’s most popular teams from the days of eleven tough part-timers mixing it up on a glorified sandlot to the modern era of green-and-gold-clad warriors entertaining nationwide television audiences, this tale has it all: legendary coaches, from team founder Curly Lambeau to the incomparable Vince Lombardi; memorable players, including Don Hutson, Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and many more; and great games, including twelve NFL championships, four Super Bowls, and the Ice Bowl.

The history of the Packers also tells the story of America’s greatest fans, whose supreme loyalty kept pro football alive in a small city and who still support their favorite squad with unmatched fervor. Through more than eight decades, Packers fans have passionately followed their team through the good times and the bad, including financial crises and long periods of losing, only to be repeatedly rewarded for their loyalty with exciting football and repeated returns to greatness.

Green Bay Packers: The Complete Illustrated History is a compelling read for anyone who loves football and an endless source of fun facts for anybody who follows the team. Richly illustrated with photographs from all eras, the book features player profiles, memorable quotes, and diagrams explaining important plays in Packers history. Next to a seat in Lambeau Field, Packers fans aren’t going to find a much better vantage point of their favorite football team.
