Escobar Versus Cali: The War of the Cartels is set in the 1980s while Colombia was the scene of history’s biggest gang war. The epic death struggle pitted Narco Pablo Escobar, the so called world’s greatest outlaw, against the powerful Cali Cartel, led by the brothers Gilberto and Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela. The war left thousands of Colombians dead and spawned the term, narco-terrorism. Who got Pablo Escobar and how did the war play out? Author Ron Chepesiuk takes the reader behind the scenes of the war to the death and investigates a gangland mystery.
“Pablo Escobar was the richest drug lord the world had ever seen, but his wealth did not come easy. When the rival Cali drug cartel challenged his power Escobar flexed his muscles resulting in the biggest gang war the world had ever seen. Author Ron Chepesiuk has done it again: another true crime classic!” – David Amoruso of Gangsters Inc
