Overview

Titletown USA is the proud moniker of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and this book examines how the Green Bay Packers, led by head coach Vince Lombardi, became the championship prototype by which other teams measured their success in the NFL's formative years. In the 1960s, Lombardi's Packers turned the smallest national market in the NFL into the home of the most successful football team in league history. The first team to win five titles in a seven-year span, the Green Bay Packers became synonymous with championships as the NFL emerged on the forefront of the national sports scene. Magnificent Seven gathers anecdotes and strategy from the squads that won the three NFL Championships in 1961, 1962, and 1965, Super Bowls I and II, as well as the NFC Championships in 1966 and 1967.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lea covered the Green Bay Packers for the Milwaukee Journal from 1954 to 1972. Here he chronicles the legendary Vince Lombardi and his Packer teams during the 1961, 1962, 1965, and 1966 championships; the 1967 "Ice Bowl"; and Super Bowls I and II. Lombardi's squad set the benchmark for National Football League clubs. The coach was a no-nonsense man who expected everything from his players (as David Maraniss reveals in When Pride Still Mattered, a biography of Lombardi). His approach quickly gained the respect of the players, turning a bunch of losers into a united team that won seven "Magnificent" titles. Rounding out the text are an index, a good selection of great archival photographs, anecdotes from players, a foreword by Paul Hornung, and an introduction by Bart Starr. Vince Lombardi Jr. wrote the afterword. Recommended where demand warrants.-Larry R. Little, Penticton P.L., B.C.
