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.

Industry Reviews

It is refreshing to come across a book which can be confidently pronounced to be the best in its field. This is one such. It combines the archival skills of one of our finest historians with the particular talents of an underwater archaeologist to provide the most compelling short account we have of the events of 1588. Few know the diplomatic documents from the reign of Spain's Philip II better than Parker, and Martin has examined the wrecked galleons which lie off the Scottish and Irish coasts. The result is an exciting narrative of the launching of the Armada and some interesting new ideas as to why it failed. (Kirkus UK)
