If you fancy yourself a Packer fan, you’re in luck.
Dig into the history of the beloved green and gold with William Povletich’s new book, Green Bay Packers: Trials, Triumphs, and Tradition (Wisconsin Historical Society Press). Povletich provides an in-depth look into the world of professional football’s most iconic team, tracing each decision—both on and off the field—from the Packers’ founding in 1919 to their Super Bowl victory in 2011. Discover the untold stories of the Packers’ business and gridiron strategies and see how truly unique it is that the team remains as the only fan-owned major-league franchise.
And with more than three hundred photographs and documents, many previously unpublished, you’ll get to know the Green Bay Packers like never before. Explore the team’s beginnings under Curly Lambeau, the glory days of legends Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr, and the modern era with the likes of Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers in an exhaustive yet intimate portrait of the boys of Titletown U.S.A. not to be missed by the citizens of Packer Nation.
