Description:

Annapolis 1988, Naval Institute, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 x 11, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiv, 178 pages, prof illustrated with photos, illus. and maps, appendices, index.-------------------------------------------------------- Contrary to popular opinion, the defeat of the Armada was not the end of the Spanish Navy as a major maritime power. Indeed it underwent a real renaissance in the eighteenth century, and at the beginning of the Napoleonic Wars was the third largest navy in the world. Its ships were well designed and superbly built, and were officered by brave and dedicated professionals, who were nowhere near as ineffective in combat as often represented.-----------------------------------------------------This is the first English language book to look at Spanish naval forces in the century before Trafalgar, and provides a long overdue reassessment of the aims and achievements of the service. Following a brief overview of the factors which shaped development and the main maritime events, more detailed chapters cover Spanish warship design and construction, and the much-maligned officer corps, concluding with sections on the battle itself and its significance to Spain.Appropriately 1988 is the 400th anniversary of the Armada, and this book is an important contribution to the resulting interest in Spanish history. It is illustrated throughout with contemporary plans, paintings and ship models, and will prove stimulating reading for layman and specialist alike. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis:

Back by popular demand, this dramatic appraisal of the Spanish Navy and its defeat by the British at Trafalgar in 1805 disproves many long-held beliefs about the competence of the Spanish fleet. The author examines the factors that shaped the development of the Spanish Navy in the eighteenth century and maintains that the well-built ships and skilled forces were nowhere near as ineffective as they are usually represented. The book includes specifics of Spanish warship design and construction and is illustrated with beautiful contemporary plans, engravings, and photographs of ship models, some in full color.
