book content

THE MOSQUITO BOWL is an extraordinary untold story of World War Two that will resonate with readers who loved Unbroken and Boys in the Boat. The inspiring tale finds All-American football players from the powerhouses of major college gridirons splitting their time tossing pigskins and hand grenades. Gaining yardage in a game pales as these tough Marine heroes become involved in the bloodiest battle of the war - the invasion of Okinawa.
