After the second world war's end, baseball players left the trenches for the baseball field and the modern era of baseball began. Players like Jackie Robinson emerged as one of baseball's greatest players while established players like DiMaggio, Williams and Feller returned to the sport.
Robert Weintraub, author of The House that Ruth Built, returns to the subject of baseball, shedding light on an era that new generations of baseball fans never experienced and will doubtless be fascinated by.
The Victory Season serves as a great kick off to the spring baseball season and may also make an interesting gift for fathers and husbands as Father's Day approaches.
