106 SPANISH GALLEON vs English GALLEON: 1550-1605
Between 1550-1600, much of the naval combat was between individual ships belonging to the competing powers of England and Spain as they sought to control and exploit the rich mineral, material, agricultural, and human resources of the New World. Explores how the galleons used by Spain and England were built and armed, and examines the effectiveness of the cannon they used. It also compares how they were sailed and manoeuvred, showing the strengths and weaknesses of each design, and explaining how these played out in several of their most prominent battles, including the Battle of San Juan de Ulua, the fight between the Golden Hind and the Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion, an action from the Spanish Armada, and the last fight of the Revenge.1 vol, 80 pgs 2020 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING
