From the Paper:

"The legacy of English sea power is well known and well documented, but what are the origins of this legacy? If historians were forced to pick a single event which signalled Britain's ascent to global naval supremacy, the event would certainly be Drake's defeat of the Spanish armada in 1588 (Morgan, 1988, p. 693), but does this event stand alone as the pivotal event shaping English maritime supremacy? This paper will discuss innovations in maritime technology, weaponry, and strategy which would provide the necessary organization, equipment, and infrastructure which would eventually propel Britain into a position of global naval dominance. This paper will not be focused on Drake's epoch, but on the epochs of Henry VII and Henry VIII and their contributions to English naval supremacy."
