BOOK REVIEW | The Battle of Trafalgar 1805 – Profile Models of Every Ship in Both Fleets

By Florian Richter and Peter Dennis

An interesting approach to history teaching. This Casemate series, Fleets in Profile, offers cardboard cut-out models of every ship in the British, Spanish and French fleets that fought in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

Cut out and assemble the models and children of all ages can re-fight the battle to their heart’s content.

Something rather different.

Available from Casemate Publishers, Oxford, UK.
