History -- Military history -- List of battles

If you were looking for naval battle, you probably would want to see Battle of Abukir Bay which is also known as the Battle of the Nile.

There were two Battles of Abukir in the Egyptian campaign of the Wars of the French Revolution[?]

The first took place in August 1799, and saw Napoleon finishing his defeat of the Turkish army of Mustafa IV.

In the second, in March 1801, a British army of 5,000 under General Ralph Abercromby landed to dislodge a French army of 2,000 under General Louis Friant[?]. They did so, but not before 1,100 British troops were lost.
