Trafalgar by RadoJavor Trafalgar by RadoJavor
Another work for Napoleon total war. HMS Victory in fierce duel with french Bucentaure at begining of the Trafalgar battle.
The biggest and most important battle between Britain and Napoleon empire. Sadly the Admiral Nelson fell on this ship.
The ship is currently sitting in dry dock in navy museum in Portsmouth and Im seeing her quiet often:) Looks amazing, also to think she was launched in 1765. She is the oldest naval ship still in commission.

We had 33 ships to their 41.

Splitting into two rows the Royal Navy, lead by the HMS Victory and the HMS Royal Sovereign flew head long into the combined French and Spanish fleet guns blazing, for if they lost the attle there would be nothing seperating Britain from the invaders.

But with brilliant tactics and hearts of courage the Royal Navy fought valiantly, after the battle the combined Franco-spanish fleet was in ruins; Nelson's navy stood victorious even though he was wounded in the fight but lived long enough to find out that he had won.

This battle turned the tide of the control of the seas, Britin was propelled from a lone island nation into the centre of the largest and most powerful empire seen to date.

Being an ex-sailor myself and having a fondness for all things naughticle I found this picture particularly moving. You have captured the sheer menacing atmosphere of a naval battle perfectly. Well Done and thanks heartily for your efforts!
