Discovery Talk: In the Hour of Victory

27 November 2013

Between 1794 and 1815 the Royal Navy repeatedly crushed her enemies at sea in a period of military dominance that equals any in history.

After Napoleon’s death, the Lords of the Admiralty ordered that the original battle dispatches from the seven major fleet battles in this period should be gathered together and presented to the Nation.
