The Spanish Armada: Revised Edition
The Spanish Aramda is a radical interpretation of why Philip II's Armada of 1588 failed so disastrously. This new edition is based on a fresh examination of archival sources across Europe, combined with the archaeological investigation of some of its wrecked ships off the coasts of Scotland and Ireland. The new edition has been extensively revised to incorporate ten further years of research by the authors and others, and is likely to remain the standard account for years to come.

An interesting and comprehensive account of the causes, events and aftermath of the Armada. The authors have no axe to grind and clearly set out the positive and negative factors on both sides. The conclusion sets out what might have happened had the Armada landed and the outcome in that eventuality looks as if it would have been pretty one-sidedly for the invaders. The reasons why the invasion failed entered into the equation earlier and revolved around strategy, logistics, equipment, personnel and leadership, topped off with the more famous meteorological factors. One of the co-authors has excavated Armada wrecks and this brings an unusual insight into the account, albeit perhaps with slightly more technical detail than I would have wanted about weaponry and ship structure. Very good.
This book is a spectacular read. I was writing a paper on Francis Drake, it literally made all the difference.
