About this book:This book tells the complete story of the Armada from beginning to end. It is readable and clearly well researched. The author has included sufficient historic documents, photos of cannon, letters and items recovered from Armada wrecks to perfectly support the text without overwhelming it. A small number of graphics depicting, for example, the difference in size between Spanish and British ships are also included. I do believe this work will stand the test of time and become recognised as an authoritative and scholarly work. For many people this will be the only book about the Armada they will ever require.
