An accessible, authoritative and entertaining introduction to the Spanish Armada for adult readers.

Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, The Spanish Armada is a clear, simple and entertaining introduction to King Philip II's attempt to overthrow Protestant Queen Elizabeth I and restore Catholic rule over England.

Written by award-winning British historian, archaeologist, and broadcaster Sam Willis, The Spanish Armada explores the battle that erupted up the English Channel when a Spanish fleet of 130 ships attempted to invade England.

You'll learn how religious tensions between two powerful monarchs came to a head, the innovative tactical planning of British defences, and the humanitarian disaster the conflict wrought.

Industry Reviews

The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information. * Shiny New Books *
