Summary

Nothing in the annals of sports has aroused more passion than the heavyweight fights in New York in 1936 and 1938 between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling -- bouts that symbolized the hopes hatreds and fears of a world moving toward total war. Acclaimed journalist David Margolick takes us into the careers of both men -- a black American and a Nazi German hero -- and depicts the extraordinary buildup to their legendary 1938 rematch. Vividly capturing the outpouring of emotion that the two fighters brought forth Margolick brilliantly illuminates the cultural and social divisions that they came to represent.
