Any pointers for descriptive stories involving large-scale good Battle scenes

 

Can anybody help please...?

I’m re-writing my short stories and need help with my big battle of Tiburon. Fact or Fiction can anybody suggest good high-quality storying telling of large scale age of sail Battles?

I have more factual books than can count. Patrick O’Brian is more smaller engagements three or four ships at most. Hornblower doesn’t seem to either...

My Battle plays out at night like the Battle of Aboukir Bay between the French anchored and British attacking. French with ten-line ships, the British similar size both with support. The port is Tiburon.

 

regards

You will have there, amongst other excellent insights, the description of the major naval battle between the Liberal and Absolutist fleet recorded by the commander of the Liberal fleet himself, Sir Charles Napier.
