21 October - Trafalgar (animation)

Today, 21 October, is celebrated as Trafalgar Day, the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

Okay, so why is a sea battle in 1805 so important to remember today?

Here's the story, shown as an animation.

I suggest that several lessons can be gained today:
* War means there will be casualties, and the highest officials should not think they are immune to attack. [Sérgio Vieira de Mello]
* Sometimes, war happens in realy odd, out-of-the-way places, and then the name becomes famous. [Costa de la Luz; Tora Bora]
* Doing something that the other person least expects can make a very big difference. [Surprise, or not...]
