This award-­winning story of the defeat of the Spanish Armada has been hailed as a historical masterpiece.

The crucial period from February 1587 to December 1588 is presented in a series of detailed, dramatic scenes. The second part of the book is devoted to the naval battle from the first sight of the Armada off the Scilly Isles to the return of its broken remnants to the ports of Spain.
