    1. FTC NOTICE: Free Review Copy From GoodReads Giveaways Program (in exchange for an honest review)Steve Eubanks, changed how I viewed sports history and America’s war in the Middle East with his book “All American: Two Young Men, the 2001 Army/Navy Game and the War They Fought in Iraq". He established himself as a highly-credible sports writer, former college golf player and PGA member. The first post-9/11 Army versus Navy football game became his focal point for introducing the reader to this [...]


    2. This book begins with a gradual indoctrination into the rivalry of the Army-Navy game by taking the reader through life at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy as experienced through the eyes of two football players. The Cadet Chad Jenkins and the Midshipmen Brian Stann stories are told as they approach playing in what would become the most watched Army-Navy game in history in the wake of 9/11.To say that this story was a page turner is an understatement. Gradually you are taken through the yea [...]


    3. I won this book in one of the contests. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but it was a fascinating look at how two young men evolved from their academy days to warriors to civilian life. They are similar in their outlook at the beginning of the book-football and the Army-Navy game being so important and the desire to get in action. From there, they transition into the different types of training needed to make them into warriors- and it was really tough training. Their experiences of war were ee [...]


    4. Story of two brave, ambitious football playing Academy athletes who played against each other in one game, and their different paths through Iraq to life after the military. Their paths do not cross after the game, and not even sure they were in contact with each other at any point during the game, so it comes across as biographical sketches of two rather randomly selected young football players who went on to serve this nation in brave and honorable ways. Well written with valuable insights and [...]


    5. Eubanks tracing the careers of two football players, Chad Jenkins, Army, and Brian Stann, Marine, who started their military education in a country at peace and graduated to a global war on terror. The book traces their earlier life, but really shines as it talks about their experiences on 9/11 and afterwards.Why I started this book: Barnes and Noble and their Nook sales are the greatest thing but my TBR pile is epic. (Good thing that digital books are so easy to store.)Why I finished it: I stru [...]


    6. I enjoyed this book far more than I expected to. I expected it to be good, and interesting, and engaging. I expected to care. I didn't necessarily think it would be fun.It's a wonderfully well-written dual biography/modern history. Crafted to turn 2 or 4 or 12 stories into 1 and done perfectly. If you're a military history buff, you'll probably be frustrated with the lack of depth. If you've never read military history, you'll probably appreciate how it's told through the human stories. And, I m [...]


    7. I really love that this book isn't focused on one single character in a single position. Instead it focuses on two men with different backgrounds from each other. It gives you their background, the experiences they both had, and shows how they have grown over the years. I looked at the book and thought for the longest time that I would hate it because it was football and the Army/Navy, so I put off reading it as long as I could. Now I'm really glad that I picked it up and started reading.


    8. 4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this one. Being a former Army Captain I must admit I already had an affinity for the Army-Navy game. What I liked is that he takes a Cadet and a Midshipman who both entered their academies prior to 9-11, gives you their background, writes about their on filed and off field Academy experiences, their commissioning, combat experience and post military careers. Well done Steve Eubanks!


    9. it was really good. I had to read it for a book report for my movement in science class. I got help translating some terms from a friend in the army currently, so that helped too.


    10. In this book two football players, one on Navy’s team and the other on Army’s, play against each other in the annual Army Navy game. This game carried more meaning then a normal game between these two because this game was played just two months after the 9/11 attacks. Both players knew shortly after the season they would start training and be sent off to war. Chad meets a girl he went to high school with, Emily, and has to make the choice on whether he should propose before he leaves for w [...]


    11. Steve Eubanks tells a moving and inspiring story about several young men as they transition from college athletes to young military officers. He tells the story of several West Point and Annapolis graduates, from their decisions to enter the military academies, join their respective football teams. In November, 2001, shortly after the 9/11 downing of the World Trade Towers, the men of Annapolis and West Point take the football field in the annual intra-service football rivalry. While competing a [...]


    12. Army Navy is a great rivalry and while that is touched on, the emphasis is not specifically on the rivalry but two men, one from each service academy and team and their path through to commissioned officer and their deployments in Iraq. The stories are excellent, heart breaking and dramatic and they provide great insight into life on the ground as a Lieutenant in the Army and Marine Corps in Iraq. You might look at the title and book cover and think sports book, but it is much more.
