Another solid offering from Perez-Reverte. This is the third in the series about Captain Alatriste. This book tells the story of the battle at Breda, and it is very simple in its telling. There is no real drama, and we know the outcome for the main characters and the Spanish. What makes the story interesting is to read about the soldiers and Spanish army of the time. How they dressed, how they talked, how they placed a high importance on honor, and all the things that go along with the history of the period are what make the story interesting. It was not a page turner, and I do not think anyone that does not have an interest in 17th century European history would enjoy this.

I will continue the series because I enjoy the writing style for the most part. I think I would like to try another Perez-Reverte book outside of the series sometimes soon.
