In 1991, their first year of existence, the London Monarchs won the first World Bowl title at Wembley. Just seven years later the team had folded and swiftly disappeared from the public consciousness. This book recounts the true story of the only professional American football team to ever exist in England. It details each of the Monarchs' seasons, both statistically regarding on-field performance and culturally with the American players' stories of their experience in London. It also delves into the history of the NFL's European experiments, the World League of American Football, and NFL Europe. Chronicling the Monarchs' surprising rise and shocking decline, Alex Cassidy has interviewed players, coaches, and fans to pinpoint the successes and failures of the flagship European franchise.
