Description: Lesser known, but equally courageous, players like Moe Berg, a backup catcher with the Red Sox who served as a spy during the war; Bert Shepard, a P-38 pilot who lost his right leg but later pitched for the Senators; and Joe Takata, the first soldier killed in action from the famous 100th Infantry Battalion, are also featured, underscoring that each player-turned-serviceman contributed and sacrificed in his own special way. While this is an enjoyable baseball book, providing interesting and often humorous insights into some real characters of the game, as well as an enjoyable game-by-game account of the hotly contested 1948 American League pennant race, it is much more a tribute to the personal courage and pure will of one man who succeeded against the toughest possible odds.
