The Battle of Trafalgar Series


Whether enjoyed individually or as a set of four, each of these historical pieces is an example of Vickery excelence.

In Sailing Into History (upper left), Admiral Horatio Nelson's HMS Victory, the flagship of the English Navy, secretely departs from Portsmouth in 1805.

In Peace before the Storm (upper right), Mr. Vickery shows the Victory at open sea prior to it's legendary engagement at Cape Trafalgar.

In The Storm of Battle (lower left), the English Navy and Lord Nelson vanquish the combined fleets of France and Spain at Trafalgar and, in Bittersweet Victory (lower right), The battle-weary Victory is towed to Gibraltar for repairs.

Lord Nelson lost his life, but Trafalgar became one of the most significant events in English history as well as the most decisive battle ever fought at sea.
