“A must-have for any hockey fan!” -John Powers, Boston Globe
1960 marked a time of transition. The Cold War was heating up. Television was introduced to the Olympics. Decades of Canadian hockey dominance were met by an emerging Soviet dynasty. In the middle of it all, a team of unheralded but talented Americans saw their chance for gold. Carpenters, insurance salesmen and servicemen by day, these men also happened to be America’s greatest hockey players. And for two weeks in California, they were the best in the world.
