Overview

Bumper Book of British Battle Axes, The by Christine Hamilton

Christine Hamilton acquired media celebrity for her feisty support of her husband, Neil, during the 1997 British election campaign. Descriptions of her ranged from insulting to the admiring. Lampooned in articles and cartoons as a ferocious Battleaxe, she also aroused great admiration for her courage and chutzpah. Inspired by her own caricature, she has now written a highly entertaining and witty book, a colorful cornucopia of belligerent belles who have enlivened the pages of history, and, more recently, the headlines of the popular press.

The popular image of the Battleaxe was of an elderly, resentful, vociferous woman, thoroughly unpleasant, arrogant and certainly no beauty. This bevy of British Battleaxes defies such sour description. Written with sparkle and humor, Christine Hamilton's Bumper Book of British Axes is - mostly! - an affectionate and admiring celebration of that special something which sets certain formidable woman apart.
