The battle off the Isle of Wight on 4 August, 1588
These charts were based on Lord Howard's account of the Spanish Armada's attempt to invade England in 1588. This plate shows some of the English ships being towed towards the Armada by boats, a tactic made necessary by the light wind. Drake has engaged the south tip of the Armada.
