About the book:

No team dominated baseball for a longer period than the New York Yankees did from 1949 to 1964. During that era, the Bronx Bombers won an astonishing 14 American League pennants and nine World Series championships, led by such greats as Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, and Roger Maris. Dynasty is the story of that incredible ball club. Bestselling author Peter Golenbock gives a year-by-year account of this unforgettable team through interviews with players, managers, and coaches. All of the Yankees' great moments and accomplishments are covered in depth, including their record five consecutive World Championships (1949-53), Don Larsen's historic perfect game in the 1956 World Series, the 1960 World Series loss to the Pirates on Bill Mazeroski's famous home run, manager Casey Stengel's controversial firing after that series, Maris and Mantle's chase of Babe Ruth's home-run record in 1961, and the end of the dynasty following the 1964 World Series. First published in 1975, Dynasty is a classic look at baseball's greatest team. classics of sports literature, including five New York Times bestsellers.
