El Cid. The legendary warrior of medieval Spain whose battles were a precursor for the upcoming Crusades in Europe and the Middle East. Banished from his own Kingdom, the 'Cid' continues to fight, at various times on the side of both Muslim and Christian to bring a nation into being. Amazing painted full color images by acclaimed noted artist Wayne Reid and written by award winning author Gary Reed. Part 2 of 2.

Overview

A look at the man who was El Cid.  Here was a man thought by some to be a simple mercenary and by others, a patriotic leader of Spain and Christianity.  Although he fought for the Church, it was he that tried to unite the two different worlds of Christianity and Islam.  It was his glorious victory (even after he was dead) that set the stage for the next event that would occupy Europe’s next hundred years...The Crusades.

The true story of El Cid is one of legend as well as mystery.  But the impact of the person known as El Cid is indeed known.  It was in Spain, which was more African than European at that time, where the Arab world and the European world clashed.  A time when the newer religion of Islam came up against the might of Christianity.  The fight for Spain between the two religions predated the great expeditions of the Crusades and served as a foretelling of the wars of the faiths that would affect so much of the world’s history.

It is a story of one man, the nation’s hero who could haven taken over the rulership yet was still blindly obedient to his King.  It is a saga of two men who had different gods yet believed in the goal of mankind first and fought to keep the two worlds co-existing together.

It is a story of love as the wife of El Cid allows her husband an undignified death in order that he could led his army in one last battle.  It would be his farewell battle...a swan song....the song of the Cid would live forever.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
