Please note on this book the cover does show lots of ware in spots. It is held together still with no problem just very worn on some corners.

Lubji Hoch survived World War II on luck, guts and ruthlessness. At the war's end, renamed Richard Armstrong, he buys a floundering newspaper in Berlin and deviously puts his competitors out of business. But it isn't enough. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Keith Townsend, the Oxford=educated son of a millionaire newspaper owner, takes over his family's business. His energy and brilliant strategic thinking quickly make him the leading newspaper pulbisher in Australia. Still, he longs to move on to the world stage.

This was a compelling story about two protagonists, each trying to establish a global media empire. Jeffery Archer is one of my favorite authors, keeping a good pace and believable characters. I warn you, this is 742 pages long, and this book may keep you up reading fall longer than you intended. I missed a lot of sleep until I finished this on.

As you read this, think of some newspaper moguls who were in the news in the last few years. Amazing parallels to real life.
