Overview


Love them or hate them, the New York Yankees are undeniably the world's most successful professional sports franchise. In this definitive history of the team's most successful era, bestselling journalist Peter Golenbock focuses on the sixteen-year period during which the Bronx Bombers won nine World Series titles—five of them in a row. Captivating portraits of Hall of Famers include profiles of Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Whitey Ford.
This year-by-year account covers such milestones as Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series, the 1961 chase of Babe Ruth's home run record by Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle, and more. Candid, in-depth interviews with players, managers, and coaches are complemented by a splendid array of vintage photos. Originally published in 1975, this spirited retrospective features never-before-published material, including a new Introduction by the author.
