The Spanish Armada: Revised Edition

Portada
Manchester University Press, 1999 - 295 páginas
The Spanish Aramda is a radical interpretation of why Philip II's Armada of 1588 failed so disastrously. This new edition is based on a fresh examination of archival sources across Europe, combined with the archaeological investigation of some of its wrecked ships off the coasts of Scotland and Ireland. The new edition has been extensively revised to incorporate ten further years of research by the authors and others, and is likely to remain the standard account for years to come.

This book is a spectacular read. I was writing a paper on Francis Drake, it literally made all the difference.
