Title:  Ted Williams At War

Author: Bill Nowlin

Publisher:  Rounder Books

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

A Portrait of a Real Hero!

Author Bill Nowlin has put together the ultimate book on Ted Williams and it is not about his Hall of Fame baseball days. Nowlin’s wonderfully researched book “Ted Williams At War” presents to us a different image of a sports idol—one that shows us a real honest-to-goodness hero! The book is so well written and fascinating that the reader will find himself totally emerged into the story and unable to put it down. The words and great collection of photos captures the essence of a Ted Williams few Americans knew about. We discover a man who was really a true American War hero!

Nowlin goes into great details like who flew missions with Williams in the Korean War. We learn about a young officer named John Glenn, who later goes on to conquer space and become a US Senator. We also read about his air combat missions and how he risked not only his life but also his baseball career when he crashes. The author digs into old flight log books and interviews dozens of former pilots who flew with Ted. All this detailed research makes for a most insightful look at a complicated man. The reader will not be disappointed in this large volume of work.

This book should appeal to not only baseball fans but also all readers who love inspiring life stories. Ted Williams was the only Hall of Fame player to have served in two wars for his country. He did his service when he was at his peak age for baseball playing and yet, he was still able to come back and continue to achieve greatness.

The book is honestly written and tells it all. It is a book that I highly recommend. It is given The American Authors Association’s highest book ranking and is also nominated for it’s annual Golden Quill Award for Non-Fiction.
