Alfonso XI

In terms of modern warfare Alfonso XI has written:

“Muslims of the city would hurl resounding objects and aplesized iron shells. These shells covered such a long distance that they hit the enemy ranks directly and at times fell beyond the lines.”

This statement makes it clear beyond a doubt that when the Muslims used artillery and gunpowder the Christians were unaware of all these things.
