Operaciones especiales en la Edad de la Caballería by Yuval Noah HarariAdemás de las conocidas batallas campales, los asedios regulares y las maniobras a gran escala, las guerras medievales y de principios de la época moderna también incluían asesinatos, secuestros, traiciones y sabotajes. Estas operaciones encubiertas o especiales se dirigieron principalmente contra personas clave —principalmente la realeza o los líderes del ejército enemigo—, y contra castillos o lugares estratégicos fortificados, incluidos puentes, molinos y presas. Sin embargo, debido a su naturaleza clandestina, estas acciones de «provocación» nunca se han estudiado en detalle. Esta obra de Yuval Hoah Harari viene a rellenar esta importante laguna. Examina en primer lugar una amplia variedad de operaciones especiales, desde el siglo XI hasta el XVI. Tras este repaso, el proferor Harari, se centra en analizar con mayor profundidad seis selectas y emocionantes operaciones: la traición de Antioquía en 1098; el intento de rescatar al rey Balduino II de la mazmorra de Khartpert en 1123; el asesinato de Conrad de Montferrat en 1192; el intento de asaltar Calais en 1350; la «guerra sucia» emprendida por los gobernantes de Francia y Borgoña en las décadas de 1460 y 1470 y la demolición del molino harinero de Auriol en 1536.

On first glance, the title Special Operations in the Age of Chivalry sounds like Navy Seals in chain mail, but it turns out the Middle Ages really did have a lot of what could be called "special operations" - assassinations, behind enemy lines action by small special forces, kidnappings, secret negotiations to open a gate during a siege, and so on. This is the first book dedicated to the subject. There are 6 chapters, each reconstructing an historical special operations incident. Harari, a young professor in Israel, makes the period understandable for non-specialists by providing the necessary context and background about the events and people - although scholarly this is not dry reading. My favorite is the epic quest in Chapter 3 about Baldwin II of Jerusalem, the events are almost unbelievable. This sort of high drama was not lost on the knights of the era who understood and cultivated a cult of Chivalry, essentially the Hollywood of its day as told through deeds and exploits of famous stars.
