This book not only is an outstanding piece of tennis history, but also contains great U.S. history of the late 1800's and first half of the 1900's. By tracing Davis and his family through those years,

the author gives riveting stories about the early days in burgeoning St. Louis, World War I,

the Philippines, the Department of War in those years, even

World War II. This book is a gem that integrates the early history of "lawn tennis," with the broader events of the day. Dwight Davis not only was a "tennis man" but a highly placed civil servant and a philanthropist. al campbell, cincinnat

The history of the Davis Cup is fascinating and excitingly written. However, the life of donor Dwight Davis took me completely by surprise: A terrific biography of an outstanding human being.
Kriplen's research and delightful usage of the written word is thoroughly complete and very rewarding to the reader. I hope that more will come from this author in the future. This book will be a joy for those who love tennis and good biographies.
