About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. They were two of boxing s greatest decades - featuring two of the finest heavyweight champions of all time. Dempsey and Louis fought their way from nothing to world titles at a time when the sport was winning a mass audience. Boxing grew through the boom years of the twenties then, when depression struck in the thirties, fans saw it as a symbol of their daily struggles. So they followed ever more fiercely and big fights in both decades reflected events outside the ring. As patterns of work and entertainment changed a spectacular new champion was crowned when the coming star Jack Dempsey destroyed the ageing Jess Willard in the Slaughter of Toledo. Dempsey was the hero who went to zero and back after the famous long count fight with Gene Tunney in 1927. In 1938 Brown Bomber Joe Louis fought for all of America and annihilated Hitler s champion Max Schmeling. They were busy days in the blood spattered theatre of boxing and the cast was huge. It included characters like Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom who had nearly 300 fights then ran a nightclub in Hollywood, Hurricane Henry Armstrong who held three world titles at once, and Luis Firpo - the Wild Bull of the Pampas who charged Dempsey clean through the ropes. Battling Siki was a titleholder from Paris who, in between fights, strolled round with his pet lion on a leash. Then there was clowning Max Baer who had a hammer in his right fist, dancing Irishman Billy Conn and Cinderella Man James Braddock. There were many more as the boxing business was developed by promoters like Tex Rickard who created the first million dollar fight. A Jewish manager Joe Jacobs enraged Germany s Nazis when he took charge of Max Schmeling s career and managers like Doc Kearns showed they had more tricks than Don King. But boxing has always been more than just a sport. The determined and dedicated individual who takes charge and fights his way through has a place deep in American culture. This is the story of how at decisive times - boxing has provided champions. Seller Inventory # APC9781505875355

About this Item: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sydney Taylor Award-winning novel Berlin Boxing Club is loosely inspired by the true story of boxer Max Schmeling s experiences following Kristallnacht. Publishers Weekly called it a masterful historical novel in a starred review. Karl Stern has never thought of himself as a Jew; after all, he s never even been in a synagogue. But the bullies at his school in Nazi-era Berlin don t care that Karl s family doesn t practice religion. Demoralized by their attacks against a heritage he doesn t accept as his own, Karl longs to prove his worth. Then Max Schmeling, champion boxer and German hero, makes a deal with Karl s father to give Karl boxing lessons. A skilled cartoonist, Karl has never had an interest in boxing, but now it seems like the perfect chance to reinvent himself. But when Nazi violence against Jews escalates, Karl must take on a new role: family protector. And as Max s fame forces him to associate with Nazi elites, Karl begins to wonder where his hero s sympathies truly lie. Can Karl balance his boxing dreams with his obligation to keep his family out of harm s way? Includes an author s note and sources page detailing the factual inspirations behind the novel.

About this Item: The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Adolf Hitler understood the importance of sport, and exercised his malign and dangerous influence to try to co-opt it for the Nazi cause. He intended to own the Olympic movement, housing it permanently in Berlin from 1940 in a stadium seating 450,000 people. His hijack of the 1936 Games remains one of sport s most controversial events, using it as he did to promote Aryan supremacy and showcase the Nazi state. Austria was forced to withdraw from the 1938 football World Cup just days before it started because the country no longer existed. The boxing matches between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling in 1936 and 1938 came to represent democracy versus fascism. German technology crushed all comers in Grand Prix racing, as well as the Isle of Man TT. A government ministry was even set up to use physical fitness to prepare the population for war. Hitler understood that sport has many uses: this is how he used it. Seller Inventory # POW9780752459257

Acclaimed author David Margolick masterfully tells the tale of one of the most pivotal moments in both sports and in twentieth-century history, the two heavyweight fights between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling. More than just fights, these bouts symbolized and galvanized the hopes, hatreds, and fears of a world moving toward total war.

Insightful and riveting, 'Beyond Glory' is social history at its finest. Seller Inventory # 1964576

About this Item: Skyhorse Publishing, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The definitive book (The Ring) on one of the greatest sports events of the twentieth century, the heavyweight championship bout between America s Brown Bomber, Joe Louis, and Germany s Max Schmeling. More than the world heavyweight championship was at stake when Joe Louis fought Max Schmeling on June 22, 1938. In a world on the brink of war, the fight was depicted as a contest between nations, races, and political ideologies, the symbol of a much vaster struggle. Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels boasted that the Aryan Schmeling would crush his inferior black opponent. President Roosevelt told Louis, his guest at the White House, that America needs muscles like yours to beat Germany. For Louis, this was also his chance to avenge the only loss in his brilliant career--by a knockout--to the same Max Schmeling two years earlier. Recreating the drama of their momentous bout, the author traces the lives of both fighters before and after the fight, including Schmeling s efforts in Nazi Germany to protect Jewish friends and the two boxers surprising friendship in the postwar years. In Fight of the Century Myler tells the story of two decent men, drawn together by boxing and divided by the cruel demands of competing nations. Seller Inventory # AAC9781611456455

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 106 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.They were two of boxings greatest decades - featuring two of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time. Dempsey and Louis fought their way from nothing to world titles at a time when the sport was winning a mass audience. Boxing grew through the boom years of the twenties then, when depression struck in the thirties, fans saw it as a symbol of their daily struggles. So they followed ever more fiercely and big fights in both decades reflected events outside the ring. As patterns of work and entertainment changed a spectacular new champion was crowned when the coming star Jack Dempsey destroyed the ageing Jess Willard in the Slaughter of Toledo. Dempsey was the hero who went to zero and back after the famous long count fight with Gene Tunney in 1927. In 1938 Brown Bomber Joe Louis fought for all of America and annihilated Hitlers champion Max Schmeling. They were busy days in the blood spattered theatre of boxing and the cast was huge. It included characters like Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom who had nearly 300 fights then ran a nightclub in Hollywood, Hurricane Henry Armstrong who held three world titles at once, and Luis Firpo - the Wild Bull of the Pampas who charged Dempsey clean through the ropes. Battling Siki was a titleholder from Paris who, in between fights, strolled round with his pet lion on a leash. Then there was clowning Max Baer who had a hammer in his right fist, dancing Irishman Billy Conn and Cinderella Man James Braddock. There were many more as the boxing business was developed by promoters like Tex Rickard who created the first million dollar fight. A Jewish manager Joe Jacobs enraged Germanys Nazis when he took charge of Max Schmelings career and managers like Doc Kearns showed they had more tricks than Don King. But boxing has always been more than just a sport. The determined and dedicated individual who takes charge and fights his way through has a place deep in American culture. This is the story of how at decisive times - boxing has provided champions. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781505875355
