The British Naval Siege of Copenhagen 1807...

Anyone with any info on this 'forgotten about' episode in our Country's illustrious History? something about Denmark having the second largest fleet in the World and instead of letting it fall into the Froggies hands, the Brits decided to take it for themselves, bombarding Copenhagen in the process with 13" Ship Bourne Mortars etc. there doesn't appear to be much info anywhere on this siege.

Gundulph, the Danish Naval History website had a discussion on this recently, in response to a question from a British O/Cdt writing an essay on the subject and requesting information. He got some interesting and informative replies.

Also the ever dependable Regiments.org website has a brief entry and useful bibliography: http://www.regiments.org/wars/19fr-nap/801dk.htm

Hope this helps

No problems Gundulph, hope it's what you're looking for. On another note, Sharpe's Prey by Bernard Cornwell is set during the campaign and while a novel, is also, as usual with BC's books very good on historical background and detail. Worth a read.

For serious readers; an in depth coverage of Napoleonic war stuff is contained in The Naval Chronicle. This can be read at major libraries. It is the original for Hornblower and Aubrey!
