The Spanish Armada - Sam Willis

Why did the Spanish launch their Armada against England? How did Francis Drake counter the Spanish threat? What were the strategic and political ramifications, and how did England manage to overthrow the Spanish invasion – was it luck or judgement? Leading historian and BBC broadcaster Sam Willis (BBC4’s The Silk Road and Britain’s Outlaws) offers a fascinating new perspective on the Spanish Armada and the Elizabethan Age.
