Synopsis

An exciting reconstruction of the heroic fight of Sir Richard Grenville in his famous galleon, the Revenge, on the last day of August 1591 from the bestselling author Alexander Fullerton. The Revenge, of 500 tons, fought alone for 15 hours against a fleet of Spanish galleons, who were each of them three times her size. Sir Richard Grenville, stands out as one of the most dramatic characters in England’s history. Cousin of Sir Walter Raleigh and lifelong rival of Sir Francis Drake, soldier, sailor, and above all, servant of the Queen: Grenville saw his moment, seized it in a supreme gamble into which he threw his life, his ship, his seamen and his reputation. All he stood to gain was honour.
