100 Years of Army-Navy Football Hardcover – January 1, 1989 by Gene Schoor (Author), Pete Dawkins (Author)


Traces the history of the heated, popular intercollegiate rivalry from its inception a century ago, highlighting the best players and coaches and providing full accounts of each dramatic contest


From Publishers Weekly

Since the first Army-Navy game was held in 1890, the heated annual contest has been among the most hallowed on the gridiron. Schoor ( 100 Years of Notre Dame Football ), quoting the athletes' own accounts, vivifies every competition, including those of the early years when the players' bravado outshone their prowess. He lingers over the pre-World War I Army teams, which featured such players as Dwight Eisenhower and George Patton, and the legendary 1913 game in which Army scored with the forward pass used against them earlier that season by Notre Dame. Schoor picks the 21-21 tie of 1926 as the greatest match of the series and highlights as well Army's invincible duo of Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard in the 1945-1946 season and Roger Staubach's triumphal reign as Navy's quarterback from 1962 to 1964. Both the text and the 145 photos will captivate fans.
