History of the Greek Gallion Privateer 1821
The Greek war of Independence (1821-1827), full of battles both on land and at sea, is known above all for the naval battle of Navarino, characterized by the attacks of the Greek Corsairs on the Turkish-Egyptians ships. Agile and of shallow draught, the Greek Galliots could easily take refuge in the small gulfs of the Aegean Islands and then, with rapid oar strokes, attack the Turkish ships.
