Description
If he is best remembered for his six wives and gluttonous appetite, Henry VIII's complex domestic life overshadows an all-but-forgotten fact: he founded what would become the Royal Navy. His vision for England's security and his investment in ships and men, while putting the country heavily into debt, ensured that there would be a navy—and more importantly, a naval tradition—for Edward and then Elizabeth to inherit, allowing England to fight back the Spanish Armada and profitably raid the Spanish Main. This book by the author of The Pilgrimage of Grace looks at the political and military history of the Tudor navy, the ramifications of sea power for the future British Empire, and life aboard a Tudor warship.
