If you have an interest in the famous Inter-Service rivalry, the Army/Navy game, I would highly recommend "The President's Team." The book describes, in interesting detail, all the football games played by Navy during the 1963 season, exactly 46 years since the assassination Of President Kennedy, himself, a WWII Naval hero. The book explains the relationship between "the Army Game" and the political climate of the time - a perfect blend of History and the lore of Service Academy football. Of particular interest to me was the section entitled "Where Are They Now." The author, Michael Connelly, devotes ample space to a series of thumbnail sketches of all the players associated with the 1963 team, since their graduation from the Naval Academy.
This book is a perfect Christmas gift for those readers interested in service academy athletic activities and their impact on World History of that era.
