The Spanish Armada: A Ladybird Expert Book


Formats & editions


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.
