This week we look at Elisabeth in War. We will direct our attention to her 1588 Tilbury Speech as she prepares to meet the Aramada. As usual, I’ve included some other documents to help us understand it, including two contemporaneous speeches from Henry V by Shakespeare, a song lyric by George M Cohan, and Margaret Thatcher’s Falklands War Speech.
