  Battle of Copenhagen (1807) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Second Battle of Copenhagen, which lasted from 16 August to 5 September 1807, was, like the First Battle of Copenhagen, an attack by the British on the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
At this time most of the Danish army under the Crown Prince was defending the southern border against possible attack from the French; thus the defence of Copenhagen was extremely limited.
On 21 October 1807, the British fleet left Copenhagen for England.

Written by the leading Danish authority on the period, this splendid work brings to life Nelson's historic 1801 victory, immortalized by his famous "turning a blind eye" to his superior's orders.
