Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
There was never a more successful football dynasty than the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1975 to 1980. During that six-year span, the Steelers triumphed in four Super Bowls. Steel Dynasty, penned by veteran sports journalist Bill Chastain, recounts the dramatic story of Pittsburgh's preeminence, interspersing interviews and game-by-game accounts.

    Steel Dynasty will help anyone a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers relive the glory days of the 1970s. But don't take any statement of fact in this book as - well, fact. Page 34 - 'Three Rivers [Stadium] also sat on a Delaware Indian burial ground where General George Washington fought many battles while protecting nearby Fort Duquesne.' I don't know anything about a Delaware burial ground, but I lived in Pittsburgh for over 30 years and never even head such a claim. George Washington passed by the forks of the Ohio once in 1758 when he was in his 20s. No fighting involved. Later, George Washington did fight one battle about 8 miles upriver, where the Turtle Creek empties in to the Monongahela River. He was then a Colonel to General Braddock who was killed there. George Washington did not become a General until the American Revolutionary War which kept him far away from a fort of any kind in then what was the country¿s interior. If this isn't convincing enough, consider that no matter what war or skirmish he was involved in, he never would have defended Fort Duquesne. Fort Duquesne was a French fort, and George Washington of Virginia, as an English subject, or an American, would have fought to protect Fort Pitt. Page 34 is pretty early in the book. The book one just paid for and wants so badly to read - so one keeps on. Then comes some commentary on the pass that Lynn Swann caught in Super Bowl IX. The one that everybody remembers, not only because it was a fantastic play, but because it's been immortalized by NFL Films, just like author Chastain says. Except that he's describing a different catch. He discusses also that very acrobatic catch, but speaks of it like just another play. The remainder of the book is therefore read with suspect credibility. After all of that, it turns into nostalgia of the four Super Bowl seasons with not enough on the league's rule changes to merit the subtitle: The Team That Changed the NFL. Bill Chastain is not too bad of a writer, and somewhat hard working, but not hard enough. This book needs to be written by a Pittsburgher.
