Federico's Moro Swords

This is just a short list of various books and other materials that may help in learning more about Moro Swords and culture. This by no means a final list nor a complete list. These are only references that I myself have reviewed. I will add material as I am made aware of it, find it, and review it. Like all I am just a student of life striving to learn everyday so stay tuned for book updates and other references.
