It's not exactly an introduction into the whole 'reconquista' issue but rather concluding remarks focused on the betrayal of Granada, the last remaining Muslim enclave in the Iberian peninsula.
But it's worth the reading for it clearly shows the advantage of Spanish artillery and the disadvantage of Muslim disunity. Read other books on the similar subject first before tackling this one.

THIS IS ANOTHER GREAT BOOK FROM THE PUBLISHERS AT OSPREY. THE 1492 RECONQUISTA OF GRANADA BY THE SPANISH AGAINST THE REMAINS OF THE MOORISH EMPIRE WAS ONE OF THE BLOODIEST EPISODES OF LATE MEDIEVAL EUROPE.

This is a good sturdy effort about the conquest of the Last Muslim Kingdom in the Iberian Peninsula by the Combined Crowns of Spain. But is the Late Angus McBrides Illustrations that makes it (The Book) worthy of buying!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a book based on the battle for Granada, Spain when it was the last stronghold for the Moors before completely being exspelled from Spain. If the reader is interested in battle and equipment used to fight such a battle and it is centered on that event, it's a good book. If the reader is more interested in the Moor's culture clash with the Spanish then it is not the book for you. In other words it is a book for a particular reader in mind and not interesting for general use, except maybe the photos. I was disappointed.
