In 1938, a match was to be fought between two rival boxers - Max Schmeling and Joe Louis. After his win in 1936 against Louis, Schmeling had become the toast of Nazi Germany and w in his corner were Hitler and Goebbels, along with millions of Germans for whom Schmeling symbolised t just national pride but Aryan supremacy. Joe Louis, the ferocious young black boxer, had in his corner almost the entire black community of the US, t to mention many in the Caribbean and Africa, the young Nelson Mandela among them. Alongside, the blacks were Jews everywhere, including those trapped in Hitler's Europe. And, to a degree unprecedented in 1930s America, there was a huge population of the white community who hoped that a black man would kck out a white man. Beyond Glory tells this classic story, which pulses with energy and captures the two fighters and the passions they aroused in a world that was about to change for ever.
