The decade interrupted by the Second World War was filled with sports triumphs and comebacks. From Joe DiMaggio's still-unbroken 56-game hitting streak for the Yankees to the resumption of the Olympics, the 1940s also saw the beginning of the NBA and the breaking of the color barrier in Major League Baseball and in professional football. The colorful new 1940–1949, Second Edition describes all of these groundbreaking events, plus many more.
