    This is a good book on the subject of Portugal s formation in the context of the of the Reconquista It even brought one or two new insights for me about important details which are rarely discussed in Portugal for instance, the reason why count Henry of Portucale gained his county at the expense of his cousin Raymond, which is a bit romanticized by most people in my country I just had a small issue with some places mainly on the first map and one or two small incoherences in dates or names This is a good book on the subject of Portugal s formation in the context of the of the Reconquista It even brought one or two new insights for me about important details which are rarely discussed in Portugal for instance, the reason why count Henry of Portucale gained his county at the expense of his cousin Raymond, which is a bit romanticized by most people in my country I just had a small issue with some places mainly on the first map and one or two small incoherences in dates or names of places, but I think part of the reason might lay on the translation I read the Portuguese edition of the book and, for instance, Boulogne appeared on the book with its English and Portuguese names in different contexts, indicating the translation might have been a bit sloppy and I don t know the extent to which small errors like putting a wrong date and then a page or a few ones later the right one appears This book is recommended for those who want to knowabout the Hispanic and, in particular, Portuguese, Medieval History
