Hi all, i want to recommend you this book from one of the best spaniard writers.
The books is about the Trafalgar disaster from the spaniard point of view. It talks about the era, the decadent armada,
problems with armada payments, disagree with the french almirant...etc... It is a great book.

Benito Pérez Galdós " was Spain's outstanding nineteenth-century novelist. At a time when most Spanish novelists were limited by their regional backgrounds, Galdos possessed the intellect and vision to embrace the Spanish people as a nation. In 1873 he began the Episodios nacionales (National Episodes), a 46--volume series of historical novels in which he was concerned less with details and facts of history than with their impact on the lives of ordinary people" Taken from Google books.
