This book is all about me and my ex-wife!!

No actually, surprisingly, we didn’t make it!

Nevertheless, this is a very well written and a fascinating read and explores a series of very diverse and interesting antagonists!

In Great Feuds in History, Colin Evans puts us in the middle of ten of history’s most significant struggles; high-stakes personal conflicts that had a lasting impact on the society around them and on generations that followed.

Spanning five hundred years of political rivalry, spiritual conflict, and ancestral discord, here are ten fascinating true tales of ambition, greed, jealousy, passion, and fear that are as gripping and meaningful today as they were in their own turbulent times.
  • Queen Elizabeth I versus Mary, Queen of Scots
  • English parliament versus King Charles I
  • Aaron Burr versus Alexander Hamilton
  • The Hatfields versus the McCoys
  • Joseph Stalin versus Leon Trotsky
  • Roald Amundsen versus Robert Scott
  • The Duchess of Windsor versus the Queen Mother
  • Bernard Law Montgomery versus George Patton
  • Lyndon B. Johnson versus Robert F. Kennedy
  • J. Edgar Hoover versus Martin Luther King Jr.

Here are some plaudits for this book;

“Everyone loves a good fight, especially on the world stage, and Evans calls these contests with skill and flair.”

– Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Evans captures all the drama and controversy in these streamlined accounts brimming with invigorated, well-paced prose.”

– Publishers Weekly
