La Bataille De Palerme : S. Le Clerc

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very finely engraved plan of this action off the coast of Palermo, Sicily in the Franco-Dutch war of 1672-1678. It took place on 2 June 1676 between a French force led by Abraham Duquesne and a Spanish force supported by a Dutch maritime expedition. Using fireships and largely because the Dutch and Spanish ships were at bay making repairs from an earlier battle, the French were able to destroy four Spanish and three Dutch vessels. This battle secured the supremacy of the French fleet in the western Mediterranean for two years.
