Bombardment of Morro Castle, 1 July 1762
An interpretation of the Capture of Havana, the last major operation of the Seven Years War, 1756-1763, which took place between June and 11 August 1762. This constituted the largest amphibious operation mounted by Britain, with over 15,000 troops involved. Havana is depicted in the background to the left and the Morro Castle is visible immediately behind the three principal ships. The British victory was tempered by the fact that they did not attempt a rapid surprise attack and the delay brought considerable losses. Under the terms of the Treaty of Paris, they also had to return the city to the Spanish in 1763.
