Gael Force provides a wealth of interesting facts and engaging anecdotes as well as profiles and photographs of the coaches, captains, and players. Merv Daub takes the reader through a century of Queen's football, from the first "Dominion" championship in 1893 with Curtis and his boys, through three consecutive Grey Cup wins in the 1920s, the 1934-35 victory of the "Fearless Fourteen," the 1955 season when Gus Braccia, Ronnie Stewart, Gary Schreider, Lou Bruce, Al Kocman, "Jocko" Thompson, and the rest of that "band of merry men" brought Queen's back into the limelight, the golden years of the 1960s, to the 1978 and 1992 Vanier Cup championship seasons. Gael Force is a tribute to the long-standing football legacy at Queen's and an important historical and sociological study of college sport in Canada.
