The All American War Game - LAWTON, James

Basil Blackwell, 1984, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Fine with fine Dust Jacket.

Lacing his extensive knowledge and his passion for football with an acid appraisal of its harsh priorities, James Lawton files a report from the front. He examines the broad strategies and the tactics of each position. He reviews the discipline, the rewards and the penalties. He assesses the demands on players and coaches. He pays tribute to the survivors, the legendary figures of football. He also reveals the darker side of the game - the crippling injuries, the pressure that takes its own toll, the widespread destructive misuse of drugs, the racial bigotry that consigns many outstanding players to obscurity. Complete with black and white plates and diagrams.
