Colin Evans, "Great Feuds in History: Ten of the Liveliest
Disputes Ever"
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0471380385 | 256 pages | PDF |
1,2 MB
From Publishers Weekly
In the tradition of its successful forebears, Hal Hellman's
Great Feuds in Science (Forecasts, Feb. 26) and Great
Feuds in Medicine, this new collection showcases 10 feuds
between some of the world's most enigmatic
personalities, with an emphasis on the global issues often
at stake and how, for better or worse, the feuds
changed history. Evans (Casebook of Forensic Detection)
captures all the drama and controversy in these
streamlined accounts brimming with invigorated, well -
paced prose. History and human nature collide as
revenge is taken to the extreme between strangers and
within families. Amundsen and Scott race to the South
Pole. Patton and Montgomery, "two armor - plated egos,"
battle the Germans while vying with each other for the
title of supreme Allied general in WWII. The Hatfields and
the McCoys, the modern - day synonyms for feuding
parties, meet in a succession of bloody showdowns, while
Burr and Hamilton's legacy is determined by one fatal
duel. Not surprisingly, royalty is well - represented,
including the bitter verbal fireworks between Queen
Elizabeth I and her cousin Mary, Queen of Scots.
Politicians are also major players with larger - than - life
personalities like Stalin, Trotsky and Lyndon Baines
Johnson. Even though the outcomes of the notorious
feuds Evans explores are common knowledge, he skillfully
maintains suspense by teasing readers with some of the
little - known facts and mysteries that surround them.
What stands out in each fascinating case is how hate
clouds common sense, how losers sometimes win and
winners often lose and, as Evans observes, "history isn't
always written by the winners." Agent, Ed Knappman.
