What You Can Learn From The Battle Of Trafalgar
On 21 October, 1805 the British Royal Navy faced off against a combined fleet of French and Spanish vessels just west of Cape Trafalgar, Spain. Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (British) commanded 33 ships while Vice-Admiral Pierre-Charles Villeneuve (French) and Admiral Federico Gravina (Spanish) commanded 41 ships in total. This put Admiral Nelson at the disadvantage of being outnumbered in terms of vessels, men, and most importantly guns.
