The Eleventh Man

ebook

After Pearl Harbor, the lives of eleven Montana college football teammates are changed forever in an "intensely suspenseful and moving" novel (Scott Turow).

In the early 1940s, the starting lineup of Treasure State University's football team are local heroes. But as America is pulled into World War II, they feel called to become heroes of another kind.

Now, ten of them are scattered around the globe in the war's lonely and dangerous theaters. The eleventh man, Ben Reinking, has been plucked from pilot training by a military propaganda machine. He is to chronicle the adventures of his teammates, man by man, for publication in small-town newspapers across the country like the one his father edits. Ready for action, Reinking chafes at the assignment—not knowing that it will bring him love from an unexpected quarter and test the law of averages, which holds that all but one of his teammates should come through the conflict unscathed . . .
