Although the reverberations of World War II shook the baseball world, fans in the 1940s found new heroes, savored classic pennant races, and enjoyed the play of memorable teams. Thomas Gilbert tells the thrilling story of this period of baseball history, recounting its events, personalities, and trends. He provides rich profiles of Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, and Jackie Robinson and examines the fall of baseball's pernicious color line.
