Read full description of the books:

Classic 1971 book by Richard Mandell about the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and the lesser known winter games held in Germany earlier that year. Mandell gives a great history of the modern Olympics and Germany's role in it, and the aborted 1916 games, (cancelled because of the First World War) and the desire for Germany to put on an Olympics, finally awarded by the IOC in 1932. There was a sticky wicket ahead, however, as Hitler came to power the next year. The games went on despite threats of boycotts and general outrage because of the Nazi regime's anti-Semitism, but Hitler, after initially resisting, allowed the games to be a propaganda triumph, putting on what many considered to be the best organized games up to that time. Great profiles of the Olympic organizers, the political movement in Germany, great athletes at the games such as Jesse Owens and many others, Avery Brundage and of course, the legendary Leni Riefenstahl, who immortalized the Olympics in her famous--and controversial--film "Olympia."
