Naval Battles and Boat Actions up to 1814

Showing all 12 results

British naval supremacy was at its height during the global wars with France that commenced in 1793 during the French Revolution, and continued with only a year’s break until Napoleon’s first abdication in 1814. Extending from the West Indies to the Indian Ocean, it was a world war in which the genius of Britain’s Horatio Nelson in such triumphant battles as Cape St Vincent, the Nile, Copenhagen and finally Trafalgar secured Britain unchallenged supremacy at sea for the following century.
