Contrary to public opinion, the defeat of the Armada was not the end of the Spanish Navy as a major maritime power. Indeed, it underwent a massive renaissance in the eighteenth century, and at the start of the Napoleonic Wars was the third largest navy in the world. Its ships were well-designed and superbly built, and were commanded by brave and dedicated professionals who were nowhere near as ineffective in combat as often represented. This fascinating book, now updated in this new edition, provides a detailed reassessment of the aims and achievements of the Spanish navy. Examining the development of the naval infrastructure and the main maritime events, John Harbron looks in detail at Spanish warship design and construction and the much-maligned officer corps, concluding with sections on the battle of Trafalgar and its significance to Spain. Illustrated throughout with contemporary plans, paintings and ship models, this is an important and stimulating contribution to the study of European sea power and Spanish history.

The Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805, remains one of the defining moments in naval history. The decisive nature of the engagement, the death of Nelson and the outpouring of national grief in the aftermath have inspired a wealth of literature on the battle and many narratives have retold this famous action. However, until now no work has attempted to provide an in-depth history of each of the British, French and Spanish vessels that were at the engagement. Dividing the fleets into the relevant classes by their rating, this keystone work then proceeds to provide a service history of each individual vessel, including specifications tables, list of commanders, casualty lists and refit histories. Each class of vessel is illustrated by original plans drawn specially by the author alongside contemporary and modern images of the ships. Vital contextual information is included, on design and construction, styles, relative merits between the British and Combined fleets, trends and developments in armament and fighting techniques, and a comparison of the pound-for-pound effectiveness of the rival fleets. This book is a complete, standard-setting guide to the essence of the greatest naval battle, the ships at Trafalgar.

"In the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) the combined Spanish-French fleet suffered a disastrous defeat by the British. Literature as Introspection examines the frequent appearance of Trafalgar in Spanish literature throughout the nineteenth century. Initial denial of defeat and outrage became more sober reflection and finally critical reassessment. Quintana, Moralin, Fernan Caballero, Alarcon, Galdos, and many other Spanish writers return to the grievous wound Spain had suffered. They progressively struggle to find solace in the heroism of the vanquished and meaning for their sacrifice."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
