A Year of Extreme Competition in Pro Football

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In this masterpiece of sports reportage, Washington Post staff writer Mark Maske?one of the most respected journalists working both on and off the field?draws on unprecedented access to produce a behind-the-scenes look at the NFL?s bitterest rivals: the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and Dallas Cowboys. Relentlessly reported from the leadership level, War Without Death delivers all the dramatic personality conflicts and unexpected changes in personnel and fortune, creating a complete narrative of four intensely competitive organizations locked in a steel-cage match with each other over the course of a year?nothing less than nirvana for sports fans.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2007 – The four teams in the NFC East have won 10 Super Bowls, and Maske, a sports columnist for the Washington Post, offers an up-close look at these storied franchises throughout 2006. Legendary Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs struggles in his second stint with the team; controversial receiver Terrell Owens tries to make nice with his new employer, the Dallas Cowboys; the New York Giants surge and then struggle under disciplinarian coach Tom Coughlin and young quarterback Eli Manning; and the Philadelphia Eagles adjust to a slow start and a season-ending injury of their star, quarterback Donovan McNabb. The book excels when Maske profiles key characters such as Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells or Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. Too often, however, Maske offers breezy accounts of games and interviews. He looks at how running an NFL team has become a major endeavor, and while his extensive (if not overwhelming) coverage of the collective bargaining agreement shows how the league has become a big business, it takes away from the stories of a new generation of driven men with limited time, limited earning potentials and big dreams of winning a Super Bowl. That kind of personal touch is missing far too often in this ambitious but anticlimatic book. Photos not seen by PW.
