    The Guns of El Kebir. Written by John Wilcox Review by John R. Vallely. The Victorian Empire lends itself quite easily to historical novelists willing to perform the necessary spadework in research tools to provide the setting in which their characters live. Provence and Bretagne were each capable of 20 knots and carried 10 inch guns. Commanding the French fleet at Mers-el-Kebir was a highly disciplined and efficient admiral, Marcel Gensoul. In British Captain Cedric Holland’s assessment, Gensoul was completely service.

      Indeed, the attack at Mers-el-Kébir was a turning point of sorts. The booms of the bombardment soon quieted around the harbor, but the shock waves traveled far and wide. Franco in nearby Spain must have been impressed; he never did enter the war on the side of his Fascist brethren. Tjebu or Djew-Qa, was an ancient Egyptian city located on the eastern bank of the Nile in what is now Sohag Governorate, Greek and Roman Egypt, its name was Antaeopolis after its tutelary deity, the war god known by the Hellenized name Antaeus. Its modern name is Qaw El Kebir.. Several large terraced funerary complexes in Tjebu by officials of the 10th Nome during the Twelfth and.

    Combatants at the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir: An Anglo-Indian Army against the Egyptian Army. Commanders at the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir: Lieutenant General Sir Garnet Wolseley against Ahmed Arabi Bey. Size of the armies at the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir: The Egyptian army was probably aro troops with 60 guns. The British and Indian force.   The first salvo came from the inch guns of HMS Hood, which devastatingly smashed their way into the hull of the Bretange, as did several more salvos fired from a range of 17, yards. The French battleship would sink at hours with the loss of French sailors. French battleship Bretagne burns at Mers-el-Kebir.
