Next month he was reassured by one of Philip's own councillors -- they felt sure all would go well, if they once got a footing in England (Vatican Archives, Germania, CX sq., 58, 60).

The "defeat" of the Spanish Armada by the Royal Navy in 1588 is a story every schoolchild knows.

In this well-written and documented book, Fernandez-Armesto examines the causes of the historical representation of the battle of 1588 and re-creates the event from both sides.
