**Revisit hockey's 'first' epic and unforgettable battle between Team Canada 1972 and the Soviet National Team, the one by which all others would be judged;
1972 - THE SUMMIT SERIES, The UNTOLD Story.**
Those eight legendary games left an indelible mark on the face of hockey that endures even today. Yet, it turns out there was much more to the legend of the '72 Series. Specifically, the full, incredible true story about what 'actually' happened would not be discovered until decades later when the first DVD set of the games came out in 2002 and this author uncovered numerous factual errors with the original scoring statistics.
Thus, began a 10-year "Voyage of Discovery" to research and complete the most definitive book ever written about; "The Series We Thought We Knew".
Learn ALL about the thrills, spills, hits, heartaches, despair and ultimate triumph experienced by the members of Team Canada '72 when they clashed with the USSR (also known then as the Soviet Union and now as Russia). And, of all Canadians and Russians who lived and breathed the series in September 1972 and the impact and legacy it has left on the game of hockey ever since!
