The Eleventh Man - Ivan Doig

In The Eleventh Man (Harcourt, $26) master storyteller Ivan Doig weaves a tale of heroism, honor, love, and sacrifice.  After the whole starting eleven on Treasure State’s undefeated 1941 football team enlist and are scattered to the various theaters of World War II, Ben Reinking is plucked out of flight school and assigned to a propaganda mission: covering the exploits of his former teammates for small-town American newspapers. Meanwhile, back in Montana, a courageous group of women pilots fly bombers up to Alaska for eventual transfer to Russia as part of lend-lease.  Doig captures the romance and adventure as well as the moral questions of love and war.
