    good choice jeff- if the battle had gone the other way the US may not have been able to concentrate on Europe first like we did.

    I was just going to write about the Battle of Lepanto. I think it is very important as it stopped Muslim Expansion into Western Europe. Also the battle of Trafalgar, which pretty much made it impossible for Napoleon to invade Britain.

    Interesting choice that its good to see bretsuki. Everything that came had to come as a result of something in the past. Salamis was a world definer, if the Persians had won all would most probably be different in the world today.

    If not mistaken Leyte was the biggest sea battle in history and negated the Nippon navy as a major factor. Great points conrado, you have excellent naval military knowledge.

    Try the question phrased this way: What do you believe is the most important sea battle *overall, all factors included* in world history? In my opinion the question shouldn't be too hard to grasp cerebrally as the great answers on here attest to.
