Product description

Review

"[Walter's] rigorous journalism relies on succinct summations of his characters' histories, which prove both even-handed and generous."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[Walter's] writes with a journalist's precision and a novelist's dramatic flair"--Booklist

A diligent researcher, Walters also has a journalist's eye for a story.--Financial Times

A meticulous and often vivacious account of the events surrounding Hitler's propaganda coup in 1936--The Times (London)

At its heart, this book emphasises the dark hypocrisy that underpins much of the IOC's behaviour then and since--The Press

Walters has done a tremendous amount of digging in the archives...the result is lively, often humorous and frequently moving.--Daily Telegraph (London)

A book of range and quality.--Times Literary Supplement (London)

A fascinating story of political and sporting intrigue, backed by the fruits of impeccable research--The Argus

A rich, entertaining and sobering narrative--Melbourne Age

Nothing short of riveting...This is a work of real significance.--Scotland on Sunday
