The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Saracen Storm: A Novel of The Moorish Invasion of Spain - J.M. Nunez - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Saracen Storm:

Pelayo's fight for Spain.

My favorite J.M. Nunez quote from the book:

"How do we battle a foe that has no fear of dying?"

Questions to ponder while reading The Saracen Storm:

Have you heard of the Reconquista?

Have you ever been to Spain?

My review of the book:

An engrossing tale about an overlooked part of history.

A heroic tale of civil war.

"Knights and Ladies" fiction at its finest.
