Fields of Battle: Pearl Harbor, the Rose Bowl, and the Boys Who Went to War

From the publisher: "In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the 1942 Rose Bowl was moved from Pasadena to Durham, North Carolina, out of fear of Japanese attacks on the West Coast. It remains the only Rose Bowl game to ever be played outside of Pasadena. As the players and coaches prepared for the game, America was preparing for war. Shortly afterward, many of the players and coaches entered the military and would quickly become brothers on the battlefield. In one powerful encounter on the battlefield, OSC’s Frank Parker saved the life of Duke’s Charles Haynes as he lay dying on a hill in Italy. It was a game created by infamy and a war fought by ordinary boys who did the extraordinary." More info →
