Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Doro Passage was a naval engagement during the United States Navy's operation against Greek pirates in the Aegean Sea. On October 16 of 1827 a British merchantship was attacked by pirates in Doro Passage off the islands of Andros and Negroponte but was retaken by American sailors. The Greek War of Independence changed the balance of sea power in the Mediterranean Sea to shift against the Ottoman Empire. This led to a rise in piracy particularly among the Greek islands in the Aegean.show more
