The Redskins entered the NFL in 1932 as the Boston Braves, and after moving to the nation’s capital in 1937, the team quickly asserted itself among the league’s top teams, making five title-game appearances and winning two championships in nine years. Although a long postseason drought followed, there was no shortage of star players to cheer for, including Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen, Bobby Mitchell, and Charley Taylor. The arrival of coach George Allen in the 1970s, followed by Joe Gibbs in the ’80s, elevated the program to elite status once again. All-time legends like John Riggins, Joe Theismann, Art Monk, Darrell Green, and “the Hogs” helped carry the team to three Super Bowl victories under Gibbs. Washington Redskins: The Complete Illustrated History takes you through nearly 80 seasons of Redskins football, profiling all the great players, games, and moments up through today. It is the essential reference for any Redskins fan.

David Elfin has been following Washington-area sports teams since the late 1960s and has been writing about them for nearly as long, including for the Washington Post and theWashington Times. He spent 12 years on the board of the Pro Football Writers of America and currently serves as the Washington representative on the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee. This is his fifth book on the Redskins.
