    Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

    Story

    This was my first audiobook. It was an assigned read by my rowing coach. I'm a competitive master rower and thoroughly enjoyed the parts that pertain to the actual rowing and coaching as well as the story of the life and times of the "boys". All in all a thoroughly enjoyable book. The narration was superb! I highly suggest rowers and non-rowers read it. :)
