From a Cavaliers press release:

"Building the Green Machine" is the forthcoming biography of corps founder Don Warren and a comprehensive history of the Cavaliers.

Colt Foutz, a former reporter and columnist at the Naperville (Ill.) "Sun," spent two years interviewing Warren and 200 current and former Cavaliers, as well as fans, family, volunteers and drum corps leaders, to produce a decade-by-decade look at the brotherhood and musicianship that have sparked the corps to 20 national and world championships since 1948.
