Battle of Navarino

The naval Battle of Navarino was fought on 20th October 1827, during the Greek War of Independence (1821–32) in Navarino Bay, in the Ionian Sea.   A combined Ottoman and Egyptian armada was destroyed by a combined British, French and Russian naval force.   It is notable for being the last major naval battle in history to be fought entirely with sailing ships.   The Allied ships were better armed than their Egyptian and Ottoman opponents and their crews were better trained, contributing to a complete victory.
