Naval Achievements of Great Britain: J. Jenkins, 1813
The world’s greatest ocean-going power of the 19th century, the British Royal Navy, won its greatest maritime victory against Napoleon’s forces on Oct. 21, 1805. Britain’s Lord Nelson led the fleet into the Battle of Trafalgar, where he deployed his floating machines of war against the combined fleets of the French Navy and Spanish Navy. This book, published 8 years later, commemorates Nelson’s victory and other achievements of the British navy. It also shows more than two dozen other great naval victories.
