Trafalgar

The 21st October will be the two hundredth anniversary of the battle of Trafalgar. Andrew Lambert writes:
During the engagement at Trafalgar, on 21 October 1805, the Royal Navy annihilated the greatest threat to British security for 200 years, but lost Britain's national hero in the process. Little wonder the battle transcended the mundane calculation of ships and men, victory and defeat. It guaranteed Britain's control of the oceans, the basis of her global power for over a century.
The BBC has set up a related series of articles, timelines and interactive activities here. Nick Slope's piece explores the activities of women in the navy of that time.
