Notes on Action


NotesE-WIKI
The "Action of 1595" was an indecisive naval battle between forces of Malta, then under the protection of the Knights of St. John, and Bizerte, then part of the Ottoman Empire.

The battle took place in late June or early July, 1595, after five Maltese galleys sailed south from Syracuse and encountered three Bizertine galleys off Longina. Two Maltese galleys failed to engage and the Bizertines escaped. There was some damage on both sides.
