Elizabeth's Sea Dogs and their War against Spain

Brian Best
In Brian Best’s book we have all that the title promises. Taking only 185 pages to cover such a rich history it is necessarily a potted account of all the major figures and events. That said we have a really good cover to cover read which doesn’t leave one feeling short changed although it does arouse interest enough to want to explore particular aspects further. Every reader will get something from this book which provokes interest; for me it was the chapter on Military Elizabethans, the men who fought on land and sea.
The text is complemented with some appropriate illustrations and a brief bibliography.
We commend this book as one to settle down with and enjoy.
