18 October 1081

Norman forces defeat the Byzantine Empire in the Battle of Dyrrhachium. By 1073, the Normans (under Robert Guiscard) had conquered the Byzantine holdings in southern Italy and the Emirate of Sicily. In an effort to ease tensions, the Byzantine emperor, Michael VII, offered his son in marriage to Robert’s daughter Helena. Robert accepted the offer and sent his daughter to Constantinople. In 1078, Michael was overthrown, ending the possibility of Helena’s position as empress. In response, Robert began his invasion of the Byzantine Empire in 1081. On 18 October 1081, the Normans engaged the Byzantine army under Alexius I Komnenus near Dyrrhachium. The battle was a disaster for the Byzantines, as one historian later noted: “the defeat was as severe as the loss at Manzikert.” The Normans would later capture Corfu before turning their attention on the Balkans.

It is estimated that during the Stalingrad campaign (28 June 1942 through 2 February 1943), slightly more than 10,000 Red Army soldiers serving in that area of operations were executed by the NKVD (Stalin’s military security organization) or within their own units for some kind of offense. That is an average of roughly 45 executions per day. See MoreSee Less

11 October 1797

British naval forces defeat the Batavian Republic in the Battle of Camperdown. During the French Revolutionary Wars, the French overran the Dutch Republic and established the Batavian Republic. This client state joined the French in the War of the First Coalition. In September 1797 the British North Sea fleet began a blockade of the Dutch harbor in the Texel. By the beginning of October the British fleet was forced to abandon its blockade to replenish supplies, allowing the Dutch to launch a brief raid into the North Sea. The Dutch fleet returned home on 11 October 1797, but was met by the waiting British North Sea fleet. The British overwhelmed the Dutch, capturing seven ships of the line and four frigates in the battle. See MoreSee Less
