England’s worst naval catastrophe,
is the title of the new book by Luis Gorrochategui Santos.
During the year between July, 1588 –when the Gran Armada, the famous Invincible, set sail from Spain– and July, 1589 –when the rest of the English replica of this fleet, the unknown Counter Armada, reached port in England– two of history’s worst naval catastrophes took place. A great deal of attention has been dedicated to the first one; to the second, none whatsoever. This book presents a full-scale account of an event which has been carefully concealed for over four centuries.
