تاريخ هذه الحرب جديرة بأن تعالج بقلم فيلسوف وأن يدرسها حكيم – لا مجرد رجل دين-.

إن كان هناك من زائر خاص ومميز لغرناطة لن يكون إلا الأديب والمؤرخ والدبلوماسي الأمريكي واشنطن إيرفينغ. أقام واشنطن في قصر الحمراء لفترة طويلة. كتب – وهو يسكن في هذا المكان – أشهر مؤلفاته:أخبار سقوط غرناطة, وكتاب الحمراء.

اعتمد واشنطن في أخبار سقوط غرناطة على وثائق ومخطوطات لرجل دين مسيحي يدعى أنطونيو آغابيدا, والذي كان يسجل ما يحدث في تلك الفترة بنفس عقائدي لا يرى إلا السيف متحد مع الصليب في حرب دينية لإخراج المحمديين...more

Half a century ago, in my school history lessons, I received a very blinkered history of Spain. It consisted almost entirely of the Spanish Armada, Christopher Columbus’ Discovery of America, the Inquisition, the Battle of Trafalgar, Catherine of Aragon and something about Francis Drake singeing the King of Spain’s beard at Cádiz. So, most of it was around the time of Ferdinand and Isabella and, yet, we children learnt nothing of the Moors occupation of Spain, let alone the conquest of Granada....more

Admiración. Eso es lo que siento al leer este libro. Y sorpresa, una gran sorpresa al descubrir que un norteamericano supiera tanto sobre la historia de España y, además, sobre unos hechos tan antiguos, anteriores incluso al descubrimiento de América, y más aún: que fuera capaz de resumirlos, interpretarlos y narrarlos con tanta eficacia, convirtiéndolos en materia argumental de una obra narrativa de primer orden. Gracias a algunos autores extranjeros como Irving, Borrow, Brenan, Gibson y tantos...more

لم يعتمد على مراجع كثيرة واغلب الحديث منقول عن اجابيدا فيروى الاحداث التى كانت في اخر فترة الحكم الاسلامى في الاندلس والحروب المستمرة بين الامارات الاسلامية و المسيحيين والتى تركزت في النهاية على غرناطة اخر المعاقل في الاندلس ويتم ذكر بعض الخلافات بين الامراء المسلمين وكيف ان البعض منهم كان يتحالف مع فيرديناند ليمكنة من الانتصار على امير مسلم اخر مما ادى في النهاية الى ضعف الدولة المسلمة وسقوطها
الكتاب جيد لاعتمادة على راوى كشاهد عيان وان كا عنصرى لا يتمتع بالحيادية

A bit on the long side, but very entertaining as a piece of historical fiction. Vivid depictions of the Moorish leaders and very evocative descriptions of locations in Andalucia. Descriptions of battles very well written. Justifiably known as a classic.

This was such an interesting book. Now I feel all prepared to visit Spain and understand the history of that area. Also to read Rushdie's "The Moor's Last Sigh"
Zahraa Waly
Excellent book, though the writer warns the reader on the first page that it is a historical book, the style and events throw a fictional air over it.
