Book The ArmadaAuthor Garrett MattinglyRating 3 Out of 5 StarsI get why so many people like this one but for me it just didn t offer anything new I know this was written in 1959 but I was hoping to gain some insight and learn something that I maybe didn t know before This book is four hundred pages and it just didn t happen I was reading this for research so it was good to have a little refresher I just didn t gain anything new There were so many moving parts in the defeat of the Spanish Armada and so much back story as to how and why we got to this point However I just wish that the author would had spent time on the actual battle than the back story I know the back story is important and all but it really could have been condensed Plus in the end this book really doesn t answer the why Why was this event important I know why but I didn t get it from this book Given the length I should have but it just didn t happen The writing was pretty simple and easy but there are some parts that are kind of boring I know that nonfiction already has a bad rap for being boring in many circles I feel like that some of the denser chapters in this book are going to reinforce that idea This is a battle and a complex one at that I do feel like it could have been jazzed up in a way that it going to pull the everyday audience in It felt like in some parts a textbook To me this is something that you don t want in nonfiction You want to make your audience engaged and excited about what they are reading I m just not sure that the everyday reader is going to get that from this book When I look at today s historians and their books there is a clear different Again I know this is an older book and all I guess that what I m getting at is that it doesn t really hold up With all of that being said the author does do a great job at showing us just how complex the event was We get to see all of the key figures and see the thought that went into it We also get to see the role that religion played into it Those of you who don t know back then religion was the driving force in daily life A lot of people are complaining about how much time the author spends on this but needs to be there You cannot write a book about this time period without bringing religion into it Once again I m going to take the middle road on this one There were parts that I enjoyed and parts that I didn t
