Trafalgar + 205 years

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maixmum Leader, as is his habit on this day, will sit back tonight and feast on roast beef, yorkshire pudding, Bass ale and trifle all the while celebrating the most decisive and glorious naval battle in the history of man.

Today marks the 205th anniversary of the British naval victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Lord Nelson’s final masterpiece of naval war was a crushing loss for the forces of Napoleon and likely saved Britain from invasion. The battle also ushered in nearly 100 years of unquestioned British supremacy on the oceans. (That supremacy allowed the British Navy to do fun things like stamp out the global slave trade.)

Sadly, due to family affairs your Maximum Leader wasn’t able to write a post worthy of the event. But lucky for you our good friend Mr P was able to do so. So go over to Mr (& Mrs) P’s place and take in his post.

Carry on.
