About this title

Synopsis:

This 6th installment in the series following the escapades of Captain Diego Alatriste, is a story of skirmishes, boarded ships, killings and sackings in a time where Spain was revered, feared and hated in the easterly seas; where the devil had no color, no name and no flag, and where the only thing needed to summon hell on was a Spaniard and his sword; where men went about their tasks without meddling in government, philosophical or theological affairs-a time where men were soldiers. Description in Spanish: ''Durante casi dos anos servi con el capitan Alatriste en las galeras de Napoles. Por eso hablare ahora de escaramuzas, corsarios, abordajes, matanzas y saqueos. Asi conoceran vuestras mercedes el modo en que el nombre de mi patria era respetado, temido y odiado tambien en los mares de Levante. Contare que el diablo no tiene color, ni nacion, ni bandera; y como, para crear el infierno en el mar o en la tierra, no eran menester mas que un espanol y el filo de una espada. En eso, como en casi todo, mejor nos habria ido haciendo lo que otros, mas atentos a la prosperidad que a la reputacion, abriendonos al mundo que habiamos descubierto y ensanchado, en vez de enrocarnos en las sotanas de los confesores reales, los privilegios de sangre, la poca aficion al trabajo, la cruz y la espada, mientras se nos pudrian la inteligencia, la patria y el alma. Pero nadie nos permitio elegir. Al menos, para pasmo de la Historia, supimos cobrarselo caro al mundo, acuchillandolo hasta que no quedamos uno en pie. Diran vuestras mercedes que ese es magro consuelo, y tienen razon. Pero nos limitabamos a hacer nuestro oficio sin entender de gobiernos, filosofias ni teologias. Pardiez. Eramos soldados.''
