Sep 2021 Article: Throwback Thursday: Defeat of the Spanish Armada
Depending upon one’s point of view, it was either the greatest maritime disaster or greatest military miracle of the 16th Century. Either way, it’s one of history’s most epic sea stories. In 1588, Spain was the world’s superpower, ruling the oceans with its mighty navy known as the Armada—the armed one. At the time, Spain was also at war with England and planned a major invasion of the British Isles, with tens of thousands of Spanish soldiers to be landed on English shores, transported there by 130 ships. The Armada was so large that it took two full days to set sail from the port of Lisbon.
The Spanish fleet consisted of men-of-war, galleons, converted merchant ships, armed galleys and many smaller craft, resulting in a combined firepower of 2,500 cannons, manned by 8,000 sailors and an invasion force of 18,000 soldiers—a seemingly invincible foe. And to further bolster their numbers, an additional 30,000 soldiers were to be picked up along the way in the Spanish-controlled Netherlands.
