Editorial Reviews

Dispatch
This book is organized well and researched thoroughly.

Booklist
[Wilner and Rappoport] compellingly portray the pathos and irony of young men attaching so much significance to a game of little importance when compared to the potential sacrifices they may be asked to make in service to America. This is a tightly presented history of an athletic endeavor that captures the essence of amateur sport.
William Wagner
The Army-Navy rivalry is the essence of college football, and nothing I've ever read traces its history better than Gridiron Glory. Through tireless research and insightful prose, Barry Wilner and Ken Rappoport have put together a book that, quite simply, has no rival. Fans of college football, and sports in general, will relish this story.
