This was horrible! One of the worst in the collection, of that I am sure.
When reading historical accounts it is always difficult, because their actions have to be put in the historical context rather than how we would judge these actions today. However, The Voyage of Sir Francis Drake Around the Whole Globe, is a piece of propaganda which wants to show the greatness of the British at sea, but instead shows it at its worst. Terrorizing the people of the globe.
I really didn’t enjoy this at all and recommend you stay away from it…
