Driven by the memory of a fallen teammate, TSU’s 1941 starting lineup made Montana football history, charging through the season undefeated.

Two years later, the “Supreme Team” is caught up in World War II. Ten of them are scattered around the globe in the war’s various lonely and dangerous theaters.

The eleventh man, Ben Reinking, has been plucked from pilot training by a military propaganda machine hungry for heroes. Man by man, he is to chronicle the adventures of his teammates for small-town newspapers across the country, like the one his father edits. Ready for action, he chafes at the assignment, little dreaming that it will bring him love from an unexpected quarter and put to the test the law of averages, which holds that all but one of his teammates should come through the conflict unscathed.

A deeply American story, The Eleventh Man is Ivan Doig’s most powerful novel to date.

    " I really enjoyed this book. A bit of a departure from Whistling Season. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Dawn | 1/24/2014

    " Sorry--it was this one, not Whistling Season. WWII and small town football. Written in an old-fashioned way. Couldn't finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Milo King | 1/24/2014

    " Undeveloped characters, read like a made-for-TV movie script fleshed out for the mass-market paperback racks. Some good period flavor of Small-town Montana WWII life, but a very lightweight read, full of cliche and coincidental plot devices. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Barb | 1/7/2014

    " Ivan Doig is a storyteller and sometimes there's nothing like a good story. This book is exactly that - a good story, based lightly on some truth, engaging characters and solid ending. I'm on the hunt for more by this author. "
