Description

Each year, on a Saturday in November, the state of Alabama comes to a halt as the oldest and most feverish football rivalry in the nation turns family members, friends, and couples into bitter enemies for the Iron Bowl.



With remarkable access to both schools, their players and their coaches, A War in Dixie reveals the temporary insanity that grips fans, alumni, players, and families of Alabama and Auburn. Both head coaches -- Tom Tuberville and Mike DuBose, in his last game at Alabama's helm -- opened their doors to every activity and meeting as they prepared for the Iron Bowl. Looming over the proceedings are the long shadows of history: Paul "Bear" Bryant, whose Crimson Tide dominated during his reign by winning nineteen of twenty-five contests; and Ralph "Shug" Jordan, who went head-to-head against the Bear for almost his entire career.



Hour by hour, day by day, we see what the athletes and staffs endure in order to win. A War in Dixie is hard-hitting proof of a bit of local wisdom: This isn't life or death, it's more important. It's Alabama-Auburn football!
