Military History Photo Friday: Skirmish in the Mountains of Morocco
Next week I'm heading to Tangier, Morocco, to spend a month finishing up a novel set there. So I'm in a Moroccan frame of mind. This week, here's Eugene Delacroix's 1863 Orientalist painting "Arabs Skirmishing in the Mountains." A detail is below.
I'll be popping up to the mountains once or twice during my stay. Hopefully I won't get involved anything like this!
