About this title

Synopsis:

The defeat of the Spanish Armada is one of the turning points in English history, and it was perhaps the defining episode in the long reigns of Elizabeth I of England and Philip II of Spain. The running battle along the Channel between the nimble English ships and the lumbering Spanish galleons has achieved almost legendary status. In this compelling new account John Barratt reconstructs the battle against the Armada in the concise, clear Campaign Chronicles format, which records the action in vivid detail, day by day, hour by hour.

He questions common assumptions about the battle and looks again at aspects of the action that have been debated or misunderstood. Included are full orders of battle showing the chains of command and the effective strengths and fighting capabilities of the opposing fleets. There is also an in-depth analysis of the far-reaching consequences of the wreck of Philip II's great enterprise.

About the Author:

John Barratt has written widely on English sixteenth- and seventeenth-century history, especially on the land and sea warfare of the period. His most recent publications include The Battle for the West: The Civil War in Southwest England 1642-1646, Cavalier Generals: King Charles I and His Commanders in the English Civil War, and Cavaliers: The Royalist Army at War, 1642-46. His recent research has focussed on Elizabeth I's war with Spain, in particular on the Armada and on Spanish galley operations in the English Channel.
