On a summer day at Yankee stadium in 1941, Dimaggio stepped up the the plate and slammed a shot to centerfield. He continued that yr to get at least one base hit in 56 consecutive games. This book is the detailed account of that hitting streak and is also a journal of the games as told by members of the ball clubs.
The book is filled with nostalgic remembrances of the spring and summer right before America's entry into WWll. So much was going on in the world, The House of Parliament was being bombed by the Luftwaffe, the Germans were launching the invasion of Russia, and yet in America, Dimaggio was lifting us up before the horrors of World War Two could get us in its grip with the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

This is sure to thrill any history or baseball fan and be a prized addition to any library. Thank you for looking
