About the Book

The 1966 Green Bay Packers were one of the greatest teams in professional football history. Led by legendary head coach Vince Lombardi and 10 future Hall of Famers—including Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Forrest Gregg, Willie Davis and Ray Nitschke—they were the decisive winners of Super Bowl I, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs and upholding the superiority of the National Football League over the upstart American Football League. This book tells the story of the hard-working ’66 Packers on the gridiron and their legacy in Titletown, USA.
