📒The Spanish Armada by Robert Hutchinson
The Spanish Armada Summary : After the accession of Elizabeth I in 1558, Protestant England was beset by the hostile Catholic powers of Europe, including Spain. In October 1585, King Philip II of Spain declared his intention to destroy Protestant England and began preparing invasion plans, leading to an intense intelligence war between the two countries and culminating in the dramatic sea battles of 1588. Popular history dictates that the defeat of the Spanish Armada was a David versus Goliath victory, snatched by plucky and outnumbered English forces. In this tightly written and fascinating new history, Robert Hutchinson explodes this myth, revealing the true destroyers of the Spanish Armada—inclement weather and bad luck. Of the 125 Spanish ships that set sail against England, only 60 limped home, the rest wrecked or sank with barely a shot fired from their main armament. In this dramatic hour-by-hour, blow-by-blow account of the Spanish Armada's attempt to destroy Elizabeth's England, Hutchinson spins a compelling and unbelievable narrative. Using everything from contemporary eyewitness accounts to papers held by the national archives in Spain and the United Kingdom, Robert Hutchinson re-creates one of history's most famous episodes in an entirely new way.
📒Armada by Steven Wilson
Armada Summary : SPRING 1944: THE ALLIES STAND POISED TO LAUNCH THE GREATEST SEABORNE INVASION THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN. BUT HITLER'S NAVY IS ABOUT TO UNLEASH A DEVASTATING NEW WEAPON THAT COULD SEND THE ALLIED FLEET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. Battle-worn and battle-tested, Lt. Jordan Cole seethes with anger toward Lt. Commander Michael Edland, the man he holds responsible for the deaths of many of his men. Now thousands of more lives are at stake as the German navy has unleashed a new menace on the high seas. Blazing across waves at unmatched speeds, the "Sea Eagles" carry the firepower of far larger warships. Commanded by Richard Reubold, a former flyer and fearsome leader who struggles with demons all his own, the shadowy S-boats imperil the crucial Allied assault. As the clock ticks inexorably toward D-Day, Cole and Edland must put aside their rancor and carry out a daring strategy before the Allied invasion force is smashed and Europe is crushed beneath the heels of the Nazi jackboot.
