Battle of Trafalgar Chess Set (TH2061)
Very fitting as a theme for a chess set, Trafalgar was one of the most decisive naval battles ever fought. In the course of a short October afternoon, the Combined Fleet of France and Spain, with 33 battleships, was defeated by a British force of 27 battleships off cape Trafalgar, on the south-west coast of Spain. This chess set is dedicated to the memory of all those who fought with Nelson, and against him, in a battle where every individual appeared a hero according to Vice Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood. The chess set here has recreated the atmosphere of the great battle and is a successful creation for the genre.
