In the summer of 1588 a great body of ships sailed from Spain on a crusade: to restore England to Catholicism. The ensuing events brought a Spanish word, armada, into the English language and created a host of exciting legends. Recent research into the facts of the Armada’s defeat has shed fresh light on the traditional picture. This book contains copies of paintings, drawings, and maps that survived from the sixteenth century to provide a treasury of authentic illustrations with the look and feel of real battle.
