Largest Sea Battle

The history of sea battles is very exciting, and full of adventure!

This is because ships were invented a long time ago, and have therefore featured in virtually every war in documented history.
Ships are therefore the opposite of the atom bomb.

The earliest ships were known as rafts, and featured no sides. They were rather dangerous, especially during movement!

You might think that the largest sea battle was the Battle of Trafalgar, which took place in the centre of London, in the area now known as Trafalgar Square. Of course, they didn't fight in that fountain!
No, back then, London was mostly underwater.
And anyway, you'd be wrong!

The largest sea battle was the Battle of Salamis, which occurred somewhere in Ancient Greece.
We don't know for sure how many ships were involved, of course. But there were probably loads!
