English Speaking Union - “The British Defeat of the Spanish Armada, 1588, Prelude to Imperial Expansion”
Just how important was the defeat of the Spanish Armada? At a meeting of the Houston Branch of the English-Speaking Union Dr. Anthony Reso will propose that the British Defeat of the Spanish Armada, the major naval battle during the 20 year war between England and Spain, had a much greater impact on world history than has been previously appreciated. Dr. Reso received BA and MA Degrees in Geology from Columbia University, and earned a Ph. D in Geology at Rice University. He is a former President of the 4000-member Houston Geological Society and author of some 30 scientific publications
