The British Naval Siege of Copenhagen 1807...

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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.
  2. Thanks LH, I'm Going In...
  3. 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.

  4. Thanks for that Link, very interesting. :)
  5. 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!
  6. Thanks again,

    I've just finishing reading Sharpe's Havoc so Prey? it is next then!!!
