One of those stories many an amateur historian thinks they know without actually knowing much. Bascomb manages an exceptionally engaging style throughout this well researched book.

The account of three milers back in the 50?s. Roger Bannister of England, John Landy of Australia and Wes Santee of Ashland, KS and KU. It is an amazing recount of their goal to be the first run a sub 4-min mile. We learn of the grueling work they go through and the clout of the AAU. Bannister ends up getting their first, but Landy beats his time shortly thereafter. When they compete in the same race, Bannister wins. An interesting read.

Workman-like prose. Very detailed.
