Beschreibung

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Capture of Cadiz occurred in 1596 as part of the Anglo-Spanish War, when English troops under Robert Devereux and a large English fleet under Charles Howard, with support from the Dutch United Provinces, seized the Spanish city of Cádiz. The Spanish forces'' lack of foresight and organisation meant they put up little resistance, resulting in a rapid English victory. After burning and destroying the Spanish fleet anchored in the Bay of Cadiz, the English land forces disembarked, captured, sacked and burned the city and took hostage several of the city''s prominent citizens, who were taken back to England to await payment of their ransom.
