The Boys In The Boat by Daniel James Brown

The Boys In The Boat

The Boys in the Boat is the story of the 1936 Olympic nine-man rowing team from Washington state, who defied the odds and took home the gold medal, besting Hitler’s German rowing team, and the world champion English team.

This book read very much like Laura Hillenbrand’s books Seabiscuit or Unbroken, although it didn’t quite make it Hillenbrand’s high level, in my opinion.

Still, it was a great read and left me cheering for this group of average guys who did an extraordinary thing.
