The unconquered knight; a chronicle of the deeds of Don Pero Niño, count of Buelna, by his standard-bearer Gutierre Diaz de Gamez (1431-1449) translated and selected from El vitorial by Joan Evans by Gutierre Díaz de Gámez( Book )
13 editions published between 1928 and 2004 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
"Gutierre Diaz de Gamez entered the service of Pero Nino, count of Buelna, in 1402, when they were both about twenty-three; he served as head of his military household for nearly fifty years. He began a chronicle of his master's deeds in about 1431, and it is this eyewitness account of the life of a knight, both in war and in peace, which is translated here. It is written in praise of his master, but beneath the veneer of hero-worship a good deal of the reality of a knight's existence shows through." "Diaz de Gamez can give a bitter picture of the hardships of a military campaign: 'Knights who are at the wars eat their bread in sorrow; their ease in weariness and sweat ... Mouldy bread or biscuit, meat cooked or uncooked, water from a pond or a butt, poor sleep with their armour still on their backs, the enemy an arrow-shot off ... ' Yet on the other hand, he can evoke the glories of a tournament, in which his master excelled, and his triumphs as a military commander both by sea and land. It is a story full of colour, adventure and romance, and one which deserves its place in the chronicles of chivalry."--Jacket
