    Default A True Seawolf Don Blas de Lezo

    Very true story that the English hid from history. Don Blas was never going down to defeat anywhere especially to the English.

    You can see Don Blas one eye and one arm but not showing the one leg in this painting of him. Known as medio man or half man. This half man was better than most whole men. He was a "Don" so Don was added to Blas de Lezo

    When facing his tactics in battle this is the kind of moves he makes.

    Thanks for sharing. That's a great history story. I love history, but hadn't heard of this one.
