    Drawing on hitherto neglected source material, Younger assesses the English national war effort during the conflict with Spain (1585-1603), examining the wartime government in a wide range of contexts, and the central and local machinery in practice, using case studies from across the country. The book challenges many existing assumptions about the weaknesses of the state in the face of military change, finding a political system in much better health than previously thought.
