Links to the first three parts of a five part feature on the All – England Camaret Bay amphibious 17th century D-Day effort at Brest. OK, raid rather than invasion but ambitious nonetheless!

That last shot of the Dutch ship is from the Texel Diorama:

Which is a stunning thing in itself!

Thanks for these posts matey – I'd never really taken any interest in the NYW before and knew little about it but this has stirred my interest. It's actually a fascinating period!

@Bozkashi Jones.

Surprising how many people who have an interest in military history and wargaming have never heard of 9YW. I belonged to a military history study group of about 12 people and once delivered a lecture on the subject; only one guy had heard of it and he was Irish of Hugenot descent; his ancestor has been a soldier in William's army. It really is interesting and offers so many opportunities for gaming, from skirmishes and sieges through to some very large battles, such as Landen.
