Throughout the 17th century the Dutch and English fought desperate wars over which country would dominate
world trade for the next two centuries. They waged massive sea battles in Europe and embarked on violent raids
in Asia Africa and North America.

Broadside employs drama large-scale re-enactments computer animation and interviews to chronicle fierce
struggles such that between the King of England Charles II and Johann de Witt the bold and able Dutch leader
who stopped a war the young Dutch Republic could not win and orchestrated the peace it could.

State-of-the-art animation reveals for the first time what sea battles between hundreds of large sailing warships
looked like. While naval experts describe the tactics and technologies of large sailing ships capable of half-ton
broadsides and fleets with more firepower than any land army historians provide a modern-day perspective
of how political leaders responded for the first time to the demand for freedom of conscience and religion.
