Witness the thunderous roar of history's most memorable cannonades. From the Gallant Affair of the Hecla and Arrogant in 1854, to Whymper's "Scrambles Among the Alps" engraving, these explosive moments shaped the course of history. The encounter between Margrave Georg Friedrich's Protestant troops and the Imperial forces in the Siege of Frankfurt (Oder) in 1631, the Combat of Spanish Frigates, and the Sack of Magdeburg by Tilly's troops during the Thirty Years War, all bear testament to the destructive power of cannon fire. Kaiser Wilhelm II's color litho and the Battle of Vasilika in 1821 from the Pictorial History of the Greek War of Independence, as well as the iconic engraving of the Gates of Constantinople, further illustrate the significance of cannonades in shaping the political landscape of Europe and beyond. H Bibby's depiction of the Gallant Affair of the Hecla and Arrogant in 1857, captures the raw energy and intensity of these historic battles.
