The failed 1588 attack of Britain by Spain is recalled in this series, which begins with the events that led to it. In 1558, Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne; and, as a Protestant, rejected Spain's King Philip II as a suitor. Thirty years later, he amassed an invasion force in the hope of returning the island-nation to Catholicism.
