War in the Ring: Joe Louis, Max Schmeling and the Fight between America and Hitler

Written by John Florio & Ouisie Shapiro

If you like sports and/or history, I think you will like this book. It is about two boxers: one from America and one from Germany. In the 1930s Joe Louis and Max Schmeling faced off two times to decide who was the Heavyweight Champion of the world. The book reveals to you their amateur careers and introduces a lot of details about their backgrounds. I learned a lot about the history of these two men and their countries during World War II. It’s a page-turner! I really enjoyed this book!
