Abstract:

"1988 marks the 400th anniversary of the defeat of the Spanish Armada. The official Secrets Act and the '400-year rule' have previously restricted publication of the true story - but now all can be revealed. In the best tradition of 1066 and all that, the brilliant artist Peter Cross exposes what might have happened during our original Finest Hour, when the home front and the ancestors of the famous - Sir Clive Sinclair leading his flotilla of Sea-fives and John McEnroe Effingham ('Thou canst not be serious') - protected our shores from invasion by hordes of Spanish Club 15-88 visitors and met Manual and his amigos in head-on conflict."--Back cover.
