The Four Days' Battle, 1-4 June 1666
An incident during the second year of the Second Dutch War, 1665-1667. It was fought in the southern North Sea between an English fleet of fifty-six ships under the command of the Duke of Albermarle and a larger Dutch fleet commanded by Lieutenant-Admiral Michiel de Ruyter. The 'Four Days Fight', is generally rated a double victory. It was fiercely contested but eventually the English gained the weather position and comparative safety, although large numbers of casualties were incurred on both sides.
