A CIVIL WAR is an unforgettable portrait of college football in the purest form: two teams that play for the love of the game and for the honour of their respective schools, rather than for money or fame. As Feinstein follows the Army and Navy football teams through a single season, he takes us into the locker rooms, onto the playing fields and inside the lives of the players and coaches. His book captures the personalities and the behind-the-scenes struggles - culminates in a vivid account of the teams' dramatic December face-off, a stratling come-from-behind victory that resulted in a daredevil fourth-down touchdown attempt.

In a new afterword to the paperback edition, Feinstein reflects on the extraordinary 1996 season, which saw both teams achieve their best records in decades and win bowl-game berths

Book Description:

* A fierce gridiron rivalry comes dramatically to life - as America's favourite sportswriter does for college football what he did for golf in A GOOD WALK SPOILED.

Book Description Little, Brown & Company, United States, 1997. Hardback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. "A Civil War" is bestselling sportswriter John Feinstein's account of one extraordinary year in Army and Navy football, the breathtaking 1995 campaign. Feinstein followed both teams through the year, attending their practices and classes, relaxing with them in their limited free time, standing with them on the sideline at their games. For Navy, it was a must-win year. The Cadets had beaten the Midshipmen three years straight, each time in heartbreaking fashion, and for the entire senior class the Army game would be a last chance for redemption. Army had its own troubles: a beloved coach was in danger of losing his job and the team leaders were determined to finish their careers with a winning season and a bowl game invitation. "A Civil War" traces the ups and downs of both teams through the season, showing how these remarkable young men dealt with the rigors of football along with the constant pressure of academy life, while re-creating the intense weeks leading up to the showdown. The account here of the 1995 Army-Navy game is an unforgettable piece of sportswriting, an up-close retelling of a heart-stopping game from both sides of the field.
