He lived among the Gaelic Irish of the northwest for seven months before he was helped to reach Scotland, and later, the Low Countries. But Cuellar’s Irish adventure was only one of many in a remarkable career. This book explores the rise and fall of the enigmatic captain in the military profession and captures, in vivid detail, the life of a soldier of the late sixteenth century.
