Some 600 words and phrases from the world of sports that are now part of the vernacular. Terms from baseball, boxing, football, basketball, hockey, cricket and rugby pepper the English language, whether the subject is war (a maneuver in the Gulf War was called a "hail Mary play") to love (she's on the rebound). Baseball has given us southpaw, go to bat, coming out of left field, playing hardball. Boxers had to go the distance unless they were saved by the bell. And kingpins were the prime targets for bowlers. This Hall of Fame collection gives sports lovers a ringside seat on the inside track. Only an oddball who doesn't know the score would stay on the sidelines or take a rain check.

Fighting Words from War, Rebellion, and Other Combative Capers explains the origins and usage of some 1,200 words and phrases from warfare. Arranged alphabetically, they range from ancient, such as Pyrrhic victory (279 B.C,) to modern (drone, I.E.D.) The reader will be surprised to learn that some of the most common terms in everyday speech originated in military pursuits. The "grapevine" and "deadline" both came to us from the Civil War. Clothing terms such as "cardigan" and "raglan" came from the names of two generals in the Crimean War. "Magazine" was originally a storehouse for munitions. And "campaign," as in advertising campaign, "bivouac" as in a climber's resting place, and "rally" as in "pep rally" all have military origins. And of course there are famous quotations, such "Old soldiers never die," "Don't give up the s ship," and "keep your powder dry." This third edition of a book originally published in 1989, greatly expanded and updated, includes many of the terms coming from recent conflicts, such as Gulf War syndrome and triple ace. It will appeal both to military history buffs and general readers interested in the history of words and phrases.
