The Letter of Don Diego de Mendoza to Captain Salazar is a sarcastic “apology” of the German War, by Pedro de Salazar. It is, perhaps, one of the most ironic texts written in Spanish.

However, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza was not very convinced by the arguments and story told in Salazar’s book. That is why he wrote his letter from Don Diego de Mendoza to Captain Salazar that begins as follows:
