In May of 1588, on the order of Spain's King Philip, 30,000 soldiersand sailors armed with arquebus and musket set out to sea. A largerfleet had never before been assembled. In the Voyage of the Armada,David Howarth brilliantly conveys the drama of the Spanish Armada'sprogress and brings to life the personalities of the men who influencedits course, from the dogmatic and irrational Philip II to Don Juan Martinezde Recalde to Don Pedro and Don Diego de Valdes, who were cousins butalso bitter enemies, to the Spanish soldiers and sailors who unquestioninglyventured into unknown seas to confront their fates. Basing his narrative on previously unexplored Spanish sources, DavidHowarth shows that there is always another side to every conflict. TheVoyage of the Armada recounts the adventures of these brave men as theygo from battles to storms to wrecks and then finally - for the luckyones - return home.
