"There never has been a sports event, perhaps never an event of any kind, that received the attention of so many Americans in so many places around the world." So wrote a reporter on December 2, 1944, about the greatest Army-Navy football game in the long history of that storied rivalry. World War II raged in Europe, Africa, and the Pacific; President Roosevelt was seriously ill, and just a few short months from his death; Americans on the homefront suffered through shortages including a Thanksgiving without turkey or pie just days earlier. For one day, all was forgotten. Army's team was ranked number 1, Navy, number 2. Army's years of football misery had been lifted by a wartime team and a brilliant coach that made them a contender, and if they beat Navy on that day, they would be national champions. Around the world, the war stopped as soldiers listened to a broadcast of the game. Everyone everywhere forgot the war for a few short hours. Randy Roberts has interviewed surviving players and coaches for nearly a decade to bring to life one of the most memorable stories in all of American sports. For three years, Army football upperclassmen graduated and joined the fight, from Normany beaches to Pacific atolls. For three hours, their alma mater gave them back one unforgettable performance.
