The Story of the Armada as Never Before,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Confident Hope Of A Miracle: The True History Of The Spanish Armada (Paperback)
Like everyone else, I knew the schoolchild's history of the attempted invasion and the way it was repulsed. But the intricacies of the actual events - the political chicanery, the attempted invasion and the aftermath - are here set down in intricate detail and in an absorbingly readable style so that even for non-historians like myself, this is a rivetting read.
