A compelling read, not for the faint of heart,

This review is from: The Junction Boys: How 10 Days in Hell with Bear Bryant Forged a Champion Team (Hardcover)
Not only a riveting account of the fabled ten days in hell, but also of the seasons that followed. The writing is a little uneven; the narrative tends to jump from player to player rather abruptly, which is a bit jarring to the reader. Even with this small fault, the book is a compelling read. This is college football at its absolute gutsiest. Warning: The descriptions of what the Junction boys endured are so graphic that the book should have an "Explicit Violence" sticker on it. Not for the squeamish!
