Granada 1492. The Twilight of Moorish Spain, on the last campaign between Christians and Moors on the Iberian Peninsula has the advantage of a limited period of time with relatively few changes in equipment and organisation. It rolls like a narrative of the campaigns, with good analysis of the strategic considerations on both sides.

The war was pretty one-sided due to the infighting among the Granadese pretenders, although the financial burden of the war would have set limits on the Spanish side

"Sedih" ... membaca buku ini, sedih hati tak terperi,...
Kejayaan Islam di Eropa khusus nya Spanyol, tak tersisa lagi jadi "Nol"
Masjid-masjid dihancurkan atau pun dijadikan Gereja, muslim yang tersisa dipaksa murtad, diusir atau dibunuh ...
Sedih.. sedih.. sedih.. namun itu menjadi suatu pelajaran bagi Muslim di seluruh dunia, bahwa kita musti rukun dan bersatu bila menghadapi musuh yang sama ...

buku tipis tapi padat berisi dan tak jarang bikin mandek baca (ya ini sih faktor a yaa-- akunya yang cetek). layout bukunya cukup nggak membebani karena bentukannya kayak majalah. ada gambar-gambar dan skema perang juga (tapi buatku malah ribeut bacanya). it's not my cup of tea, but i enjoyed reading it.
