On December 11, 1941, All-American football player Dave Schreiner wrote to his parents, Im not going to sit here snug as a bug, playing football, when others are giving their lives for their country. . . . If everyone tried to stay out of it, what a fine country wed have! Schreiner didnt stay out of it. Neither did his Wisconsin Badger teammates, including friend and cocaptain Mark Had Hoskins and standouts Crazylegs Hirsch and Pat Harder. After that legendary 1942 season, the Badgers scattered to serve, fight, and even die around the world.

This fully revised edition of the popular hardcover includes follow-up research and updates about many of the 42 Badgers, plus a new foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author David Maraniss. Readers and reviewers agree: Terry Freis heart-wrenching story of Schreiner and his band of brothers is much more than one teams tale. Its an All-American story.
