AN­GLO-SPAN­ISH WAR

History of War - - ELIZABETHAN WARS -

Al­though war is never for­mally de­clared, Eng­land and Spain fight for al­most 20 years on land and sea. Eng­land achieves the most fa­mous vic­to­ries, but there are suc­cesses and de­feats on both sides, and the con­flict even­tu­ally ends in a stale­mate shortly after El­iz­a­beth’s death.

Nu­mer­ous en­gage­ments took place at sea, in­clud­ing the Bat­tle of Flores in 1591 when an English squadron was de­feated after at­tack­ing a Span­ish trea­sure fleet
