Top Customer Reviews
The style and content are excellent and the prologue pointed out that when the book was written there were very few or no studies in Spanish or other languages of this period.
However it assumes that you are familiar with the Spanish international political / military history and discusses impacts of involvement in foreign affairs without specifically describing details of those affairs. (For example, there's hardly any mention of the Italian Wars and you won't be able to figure out the extent of Habsburg-Ottoman conflict based solely on this book.) So, if you're more interested in international politics and warfare narrative, you should rather search elsewhere.
