Sometime in the last five days, I read, but forgot to post about, Osprey Raid #17: The Great Expedition: Sir Francis Drake on the Spanish Main 1585 - 86. I'm not sure why this is considered by them to be a raid, rather than a campaign, but in any case it's an interesting read about one of the successful pirates (oops, I mean privateers...). I did find it curious that they recycled some artwork from another Osprey book; I don't recall ever seeing them do THAT before.
