"The Sun over Breda" is the third (and for the moment) last book in the Captain Alatriste-series. It deals with the siege of Breda in , when the Catholic Spanish troops under Ambrosia Spinola besieged the Protestant Dutch garrison (Diego Velazquez actually made a quite famous painting of the surrender of the Dutch garrison)/5(33).

  Like Velázquez’s painting “The Sun Over Breda” has a large canvas. Mr. Pérez-Reverte incorporates the principals of the scene — which shows a key to the city of Breda being transferred from a Dutch leader to a Spanish one — into the book’s earlier action. Even the blue and white banner in the painting is accounted for.   "The sun over Breda" is a well written book with a thoughtful plot and character development. I enjoy books by this author because they break away from the standard formula approach so often seen in popular fiction. The history is well researched and accurate.
