The Spanish Armada of 1588 explains why the massive fleet of 130 ships failed in its mission to end English meddling in Spanish affairs and exposes many of the myths which have grown around the story of the Spanish Armada Campaign. With the aid of contemporary illustrations and eye-witness reports, this site vividly describes the tragic story of how this Great Enterprise descended into an apalling tale of human misery and suffering. The Spanish Armada of 1588 site also contains a searchable on-line database, containing records of over 300 ships involved in the Armada Campaign."
