by Michael Maccambridge




Overview -
'69 Chiefs is a vibrantly written and vividly photographed narrative of the legendary season of the 1969 Kansas City Chiefs' journey to a world championship in Super Bowl IV. Along with an intimate view of the team and their historic season, readers are given a clear perspective of a crucial point in Kansas City's history, when the Heart of America stood on the verge of becoming a thoroughly modern American city.

Whether you're a longtime Chiefs fan who wants to relive that thrilling season, or a younger Chiefs diehard seeking to better understand why the Chiefs of that era were so beloved, this is the book for you.
