I'm excited to announce that the Breakaway video is released!
September 10, 2018
I'm thrilled to post a short video that gives a taste of the drama limned in my forthcoming book, The Breakaway: the Untold Story of the Wirtz Family and the Chicago Blackhawks. Produced by the Banner Collective, created by Danny Wirtz—son of Rocky Wirtz, the subject of the book, it’s definitely worth a look. Historical photos tracing the team and the family empire from the early days, through the Bobby Hull era, through the three Stanley Cup Championships in seven years. The end of the video includes a link where you can pre-order the book, much of the proceeds of which will go to the Blackhawks Foundation.
