If I am not mistaken, Cervantes (Author of Don Quixote) lost his hand in this battle.
If anyone wants to read a great book about Christian Knights repelling a muslim invasion read "The Siege of Malta" by Ernle Bradford. Phenomenal read.

"The Siege of Malta" by Ernle Bradford
Added to "to read" list.
I'll also recommend
by Robert Spenser (or Spencer)
I heard the author interviewed on The Michael Medved Show; sounds like a well-documented,
politically-incorrect (=honest) book about the greater aims and actions of Islam.
