Reviews

"Wartime Basketball: The Emergence of a National Sport During World War II serves as a tremendous addition to the history of professional basketball."--Susan J./I>--Susan J. Rayl "ARETE "
"An important work for readers interested in the history of basketball before the NBA."--Library Journal--Library Journal (06/01/2016)
"I love this book. The narrative comes alive with the fascinating testimonies of those involved. Along the way, Douglas Stark traces the evolution of the game during those otherwise fearsome years. This is a must-have book for both the casual basketball fan as well as the devoted hoop-o-phile."--Charley Rosen, author of Perfectly Awful: The Philadelphia 76ers' Horrendous and Hilarious 1972-1973 Season
