An incredible read, both for the lover of history and the lover of sport. Not only does the book take the reader through the lives of two iconic boxers but captures perfectly and explores life in the 30s, both as lived in various parts of America and in Germany. A fantastic companion read to Schaap's Cinderella Man, this is one of the finest non-fiction sports books I've ever read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a fight fan I just laugh when I hear about the next 'fight of the century' being staged. There was so many of them that I can't remember them all. The author, David Margolick, takes us back to the one true fight of the century. This was the type of sporting event that changed people's lives. An event that involved race, national pride,the future of boxing but most of all personal pride. How nothing else mattered in the world but winning this rematch. It is a fascinating read of history and human nature.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
