En el decadente Imperio español de los últimos Austrias, con más frentes abiertos de los que finalmente pudieron contenerse, afloró un nuevo tipo de soldado: el miliciano de dudosa extracción, pendenciero y predispuesto al saqueo. Uno de aquellos soldados fue Alonso de Guillén, más conocido como capitán Alonso de Contreras, que narra en este libro, con minuciosa exactitud y feroz naturalidad, las peripecias y recovecos de su vida y oficio. Esta asombrosa sucesión de duelos, abordajes, temporales, combates y episodios cortesanos conforma el impagable testimonio del carácter y la vida de los soldados profesionales de la España de su tiempo. No es el único soldado español de ese tiempo que puso su vida por escrito, pero es sin duda el mejor. Arturo Pérez-RevertePrólogo de Arturo Pérez-Reverte
