The Battle of Quiberon Bay, 21 November 1759: the Day After
A painting showing the day after the Battle of Quiberon Bay. This was the most important and decisive naval encounter during the Seven Years War, 1756-1763. It resulted in the destruction of the French Brest fleet and occurred when the French broke out of the five-month English blockade of Brest. The blockade was set up to prevent the French fleet sailing to collect troop transports assembled in the Gulf of Morbihan, in southern Brittany, for a planned invasion of Ireland. The battle stopped any plans the French had for invasion in the Seven Years War.
