An insider's view of the Great Siege,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Siege of Malta, 1565: Translated from the Spanish edition of 1568 (First Person Singular) (Paperback)
The Great Siege is one of history's major epics. The narative is Bradford's translation and comes out quite like his own writing style. But the detail is king and this book is a great companion to the Bradford's own. If you've lived in Malta for a while, you've had time to absorb the scenario even though much of the stonework has subsequently been replaced after WW II bomb damage. A really good book!
