This book is filled with short, very gripping accounts of rivalries that changed history from Alexander the Great and Persia's Darius to JFK and Nixon. I used it to research some of the most fascinating competing pairs in European history. I like the great format of this book, so inviting with colorful illustrations and diagrams (of Waterloo, for instance) and with very informative sidebars. I just wish I had a hard cover edition, because I think my students will wear out this softcover.
