The Confident Hope of a Miracle: The True Story of the Spanish Armada
Publisher: Vintage Books USA
The story of the Spanish Armada is one of the great epics, with a cast of characters as rich and varied as any in history and results that shaped Europe for centuries to come. Neil Hanson — acclaimed author of “The Great Fire of London” — traces the origins of the conflict from the Old World to the New, delineating the Armada campaign in rousing prose. He illuminates the lives of kings and popes, spymasters and assassins, military commanders and common sailors, and the ordinary men and women caught up in this great event when the fate of nations hung in the balance. “The Confident Hope of a Miracle” is authentic and original history written with the pace and drama of a novel.
