His book on the Spanish Armada appeared in 1959. Unfortunately, Mattingley died prematurely, in Oxford, in 1962. I first read Mattingly's book as a grammar school (high-school to readers on the other side of the pond) history student in England in the 1960s, and have been coming back to it regularly ever since for the sheer pleasure of it. My old paperback copy wore out, so my family gave me the hardback version.
