Osprey’s examination of one of the great sea battles of the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802). On the night of August 1, 1798, a British fleet under the command of Rear-Admiral Horatio Nelson met a French fleet under the command of Admiral Fran?ois-Paul Brueys D’Aigalliers. By morning the British had won a near-complete victory: only two of the 13 French ships-of-the-line escaped and the rest were either captured or destroyed. It was the first major independent victory of Nelson’s career but more importantly it crippled the French effort in Africa by denying them access to the suplies and support from the sea.
