La conquista de Canarias 1402-1496
It is hard to believe, but there are still episodes of the history of Spain unknown to the vast majority of Spaniards. Without a doubt, the conquest of the Canary Islands is one of them. There are hardly any easily accessible works that explain the events that led to the archipelago becoming part of the kingdom of the Catholic Monarchs. B/w and color illust.
Its pages contain the gripping account of the conquest of a rugged territory populated by tribes fiercely jealous of their freedom who resisted being colonized by iron-covered foreigners who carried a strange religion. It took considerable human and material effort and the use of all resources within the reach of a modern army such as spanish, to impose themselves on warriors experts in guerrilla warfare and hand-to-hand combat who were able to make the most of a terrain they knew perfectly.
