The Spanish armadas by Winston Graham( Book )

39 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most people today, the sixteenth-century conflict between England and Spain consisted solely in the destruction of the Great Armada in 1588 by Drake, Howard, and the English weather. These pages place that Armada in its true position, as only the most spectacular of many attempts by the Spanish to conquer England and make it Catholic, first by friendship, then by the marriage of Philip to Mary Tudor, and later by battle. The book vividly summarizes the disruptive forces in Europe that, through thirty years, broke down the tradition of amity between England and Spain. It shows how, from the meeting in 1554 between Philip and Elizabeth, the two maintained their respect for each other and a façade of peace long after the wish for peace had gone. Although the clash of the two great fleets provides the central theme of this work, it makes clear that the defeat of the First Armada did not mean the end of the Spanish navy but rather its beginning on new lines. After 1588 England had only one other real success against Spain, at Cadiz in 1596. Spain launched three more armadas. Little-known aspects of this extraordinary combat, upon which so much of the later history of western Europe depended, are strikingly brought to life in this book by a writer whose gifts as a storyteller and a scholar are very evident in this superb story of human hostility and passion.--Adapted from dust jacket
