The last fight of the Revenge

The last fight of the Revenge, which took place during the last two days of August 1591, remains one of the most famous of all sea fights in English history. The courage of Sir Richard Grenville who stood firm with one ship against an armada of 53 has inspired generations of seafarers as well as Tennyson's evocative poem, The revenge : a ballad of the fleet
