Young adult novel following a Jewish boy as he matures from a street fighter in an anti-Semitic neighborhood of Philadelphia circa 1910 to a high school football star and ultimately a WWI war hero in France. Uncommon first edition, especially in such a well-preserved example of the photo-montage jacket.
