'A superb account of the hijacking of the Olympic Games by the Nazis'
A comprehensive account of the events leading up to the games
'A panoramic perspective of the most controversial sporting event of the 20th century... fascinating'
'A fascinating, broad canvas that brings into sharp focus the deadlier political games being played at the time'
'Amongst several new titles commemorating the Berlin gathering, Walters' is perhaps the definitive account, not only shattering well-entrenched myths... but shedding new light on the numerous dodgy deals struck by the Nazis to ensure the games went ahead as planned.'
'The joy of this book will be the reliving of the 1936 summer Olympics, which Walters evokes with all the cut and dash of an accomplished sports writer'
'It is a tribute to Guy Walters that the real story continues to shock 70 years on'
