It's no coincidence that the sport of football employs terms usually associated with war, such as 'aerial attack', 'blitz', and 'trench warfare'. During World War II, the United States military and colleges joined forces, fielding competitive teams to prepare men for combat. This book relates the Department of the Navy's role in preserving the game and national morale through the 'Lend-Lease' of officer candidates, including All-American players and professionals. It features a foreword by television commentator Beano Cook; 80 photographs and illustrations; a listing of all military teams; records, scores, and statistics of principal teams; player profiles; and a glossary of period football and military terminology.
