Lazarus’ solid, unflashy reporting is celebratory without being worshipful, and his study of what made a winning Washington team click will inspire both nostalgia and yearning among fans.
A fascinating look at one of the breathtaking one-on-one battles in NFL history…Wonderfully done.
I called every play in the years described here. Now I walk away from reading Adam Lazarus’s wonderful Hail to the Redskins with a better perspective on how that magic actually happened. Lazarus has talked to virtually everyone involved in coaching, playing for, and reporting on the teams that won three Super Bowl titles and the Hall of Fame coach who led them to glory. Finally, a writer has put it all together in a work that will help you fully appreciate what Joe Gibbs and those around him accomplished during the greatest decade in Washington Redskins history. Hail to Adam Lazarus for a job well done!

If there is one book to own about those glorious days, when Washington ruled the NFL world, this is it. A great literary ride about a special team. A must have for fans of the team.
The wildly successful Joe Gibbs era comes alive in Adam Lazarus’s riveting new book about the most important sports team in Washington. Gibbs took a proud but struggling franchise and turned it into a football dynasty. What a delight it is to read this detailed account and live that fascinating story all over again.
