From Corn Rows to Rose Bowl to Hedgerows and Foxholes: The Forging of an American Legacy, This book allows one to walk in their shoes for a country mile or more, enjoying their triumphs, laughing with them and gaining a sense of what could possibly cause these men to willingly lay down their slide rules and pitchforks to pick up rucksacks and M1s. On January 1, 1941, Nebraska football coach Biff Jones led his Cornhuskers - with names like Harry Hippity Hopp from Hastings, G.I.'s King Kong Royal Kahler, the Star City's Own Eddie Schwartzkopf, Hermie the German Rohrig, and Forrest Behm, Al Zikmund from Ord, Walter "the Butcher" Luther of Cambridge, and Cowboy Roy Petsch of Scottsbluff - out to Pasadena to play the biggest game of their lives: the 1941 Rose Bowl. Before the end of World War II , nearly all of these Nebraskans were proudly wearing the uniform of their country. This is the bigger-than-life story of how they lived and how they died . . . Celebrate and remember with us the 75th anniversary of that first Nebraska bowl game and of the entry of our nation into the Second World War.
