History's Great Showdowns Some of the world's foremost historians - from Morris Bishop and J. Christopher Herold to H. R. Trevor-Roper and Barbara Tuchman - tell the stories of the greatest showdowns of all time. Here, Richard the Lionheart faces off against the sultan Saladin, Pope Leo I against Attila the Hun, Spanish Explorer Hernán Cortés against Aztec King Moctezuma II, and Emperor Napoleon against Russia's Alexander I. The collection ends with the 1904 standoff between President Teddy Roosevelt and Moroccan desperado Mulay Ahmad al-Raysuni over the kidnapping of an American citizen.,
