KIRKUS REVIEW

In this rather lengthy book by ex-Army coach Earl Blaik, forworded by General MacArthur, we get the inside dope on thirty years of great Dartmouth and Army teams. In short, Blaik tells all. Recounting his boyhood in Ohio, where the Dayton Flood of 1913 prepared him for the shocks of life, he takes us through college, West Point, and wild west cavalry days. Then comes football. Blaik tells how he evolved his coaching theories. He gives us brief, rather two-dimensional views of such greats as ""Light Horse Harry"" Wilson and Knut Rockne, tells how he later developed Blanchard and Davis during the great 1944-1950 Army teams. And he sticks up for the cadets, including his own son, dismissed from West Point in 1951 for breaking honor rules. Good sporting stuff, given slickness by a professional writer, and nowhere deep enough to let any reader in over his head.
