The last European possession on the Indian subcontinent was the Portuguese enclave at Goa. The Indian government made attempts at negotiating a Portuguese withdrawal but were rebuffed on the grounds the area had been incorporated into metropolitan Portugal. The Indians resolved to take military action and openly prepared Operation Vijay, to be carried out by one division and one brigade from India’s Southern Army. The 8,000 Portuguese defenders could not win, but were asked to hold out for eight days in the hope international pressure on New Delhi would stop the fighting. The carefully prepared Indian assault began on the morning of 18 December 1961. A UN resolution condemning the action was halted by a Soviet veto but came too late as the defenders surrendered on the evening of 19 December. See MoreSee Less

27 September 1066

William of Normandy sets sail from the mouth of the Rive Somme, marking the beginning of the Norman conquest of England. Following the death of Edward the Confessor, a dispute about succession occurred between the Anglo-Saxon Earl Harold Godwinson, the Norwegian king Harald Hardrada, and William the Duke of Normandy. In January 1066, Godwinson seized the throne. Hardrada was the first to strike, invading northern England in early September 1066. After achieving victory in the Battle of Fulford on 20 September, Hardrada was defeated by Godwinson five days later in the Battle of Stamford Bridge. While the Anglo-Saxon king was in northern England, William launched his invasion on 27 September. The Norman’s landed the following day at Pevensey, and when word reached Godwinson of the second invasion, he force-marched his army south to face them. The two would clash two weeks later at the Battle of Hastings where William would emerge victorious. See MoreSee Less

Did you know?

CSS Albemarle was one of a series of ironclads started by the Confederates after the obvious success of CSS Virginia (ex-USS Merrimac) in her brief career. Working off a design by John Porter, chief designer for the Confederate Navy, the construction of the new vessel was overseen by 19-year-old Lt. Gilbert Elliott. Albemarle, launched in April 1864, quickly established a presence on North Carolina’s Roanoke River, clearing the way for the Confederate recapture of the river port of Plymouth. Six months after her launch, she was sunk by a spar torpedo in a daring night attack by 22-year-old US Navy Lt. William Cushing. The success exacted a high cost; Cushing’s spine was injured in the attack. Though disease has been implicated, the constant pain of his injury aged him visibly, eventually incapacitating and then killing him ten years after the action. See MoreSee Less

20 September 1854

The allied Anglo-French troops defeat Russian forces in the Battle of the Alma during the Crimean War. On 13 September 1854, Allied troops landed on the western coast of the Crimean Peninsula at Calamity Bay. The troops established a beachhead, and six days later began their march south toward Sevastopol. Countering the Allied march was a Russian force of 36,000 troops. The Allies had superior numbers (over 60,000 soldiers), but the Russians had the terrain advantage, occupying the heights above the River Alma. On 20 September the two sides clashed. Despite having the terrain advantage, the Allies were able to overwhelm Russian positions and achieve victory. After the battle, the Allies would continue their march south to begin their siege of Sevastopol. See MoreSee Less
