In Dawn of a Dynasty, he relives for readers how this team won nineteen straight games in midseason and later claimed the pennant-then capped the season with a memorable World Series win against the Brooklyn Dodgers.The unforgettable 1947 Yankee team launched a remarkable record of winning fifteen American League pennants and ten World Championships between 1947 and 1964 and truly marked the Dawn of a Dynasty.
