Overview

Football historian Richard Whittingham brings together vintage and contemporary photographs and a colorful blend of facts, features, and profiles to create a book no Washington 'skins football fan should be without. Whittingham traces the club's beginnings in Boston as the Braves, through its successful move to our nation's capital, from the almost slapstick inept teams of the 1950s to George Allen's Over-the-Hill-Gang that began a resurgence that carried the Redskins to three Super Bowls under legendary coach Joe Gibbs. With more than 100 archival photos this is a "keeper" for Redskin fans of all ages.
