Description Details Customer Reviews En visperas del bicentenario de la batalla de Trafalgar 21 de octubre deAlfaguara pidio a Arturo Perez-Reverte un relato sobre su particular vision del combate naval mas famoso de la historia, que enfrento a la escuadra combinada hispano-francesa con la britanica, mandada por el almirante Nelson, en las aguas espanolas del cabo Trafalgar.
The account reserves some excoriating criticism for Spain’s French allies and some modern vernacular Castilian for the English. El vocabulario naval tambien se me antoja excesivo, seguro que para agturo aficionados a la nautica se trata de algo genial pero para el resto de los humanos supone demasiadas visitas a google o directamente saltarse algunos parrafos.
The book, billed as the most important Spanish work on the subject since the eminent novelist Benito Perez-Galdos wrote his own Trafalgar, is a blend of archive research and popular narrative techniques.
Por ultimo, tratandose de un libro de Reverte echo en falta alguna de sus brillantes descripciones de viejos guerreros cuyas experiencias se muestran tanto en lo maltrecho de sus cuerpos como en lo profundo de sus miradas.
