|During World War II, the National Football League faced a crisis unimaginable today: a labor shortage.
By 1943, so many players were in the armed forces that the league was forced to merge the Steelers and the Eagles.
Thus were born the Steagles.
“Last Team Standing: How the Steelers and the Eagles – ‘The Steagles’ – Saved Pro Football During World War II” by Matthew Algeo tells the incredible true story of one of the most colorful, unusual, and unexpectedly successful teams in sports history.
Based on interviews with every surviving member of the Steagles, "Last Team Standing" also includes eight pages of photographs, many of which have never been published before.
“Last Team Standing" is now on sale in bookstores nationwide and online.
