I am almost done with 'The Sun over Breda'. The novel is about Captain Alatriste's experience in the Siege of Breda by a Spanish army led by Ambrosio Spinola in 1625. The narrative described the seizure of a small town, a repulse of Maurice of Nassau's initial attack and fighting in the trenches. An attack by the English was also described.
