ACI Battle of Lowestoft

The Restoration period was also marked by Anglo-Dutch wars. The Dutch and British navies collided on June 3, 1665, near the town of Lowestoft. Britain sent 109 men-of-wars and 28 war ships to square off against the Dutch's 103 men-of-war and 11 fireships.

The Dutch formation began to crumble, the British advanced. However, the Battle of Lowestoft proved to be a rare triumph for the English side, as the Dutch were able to recover and impose their conditions for peace two years after the battle.
