McMillan Palgrave
From the 13th century until early in the 17th century, the Border Marches of England and Scotland were torn by a vicious and almost continuous cycle of raid, reprisal and blood feud. The Border Reiver was a professional cattle thief, a guerilla soldier skilled at raiding, tracking and ambush, and a well organized "gangster." Including eight superb full page color plates by Angus McBride, as well as numerous other illustrations, this text by Keith Durham explores the colorful history of these remarkable people.

Hatfield & McCoy feud doesn't hold a candle compared to this!
I could see why FASA borrowed troubled history in its 1980s role playing game. Replace sword, horse & gun in mutual border raids with laser, mecha & weapon of mass destruction and you get Battletech...
