In 1415, a fleet sailed from Portugal, across the Straits of Gibraltar and stormed the Muslim port of Ceuta in Morocco: the capture and massacre of that great trading city marked the beginning of Portuguese expansion. Roger Crowley tells the story of the era of Portugal’s imperial conquests that followed, first down the west coast of Africa, then India, Brazil, China and Japan: an epic of navigation and trade, crusade, diplomacy and espionage, endurance, reckless courage and extreme violence.
