He formed his fleet into two columns, which approached the enemy line at right angles, broke through in both places and were able each to outnumber a portion of the opposition without the interference of the rest. That done, they turned on the remainder and destroyed them too.

Nelson was outnumbered by the French and Spanish, but he knew that his force was superior in every other area.

It is nothing short of miraculous that the Americans won the battle. Admiral Halsey had been successfully lured away with his modern battleships, carriers, and cruisers, by Admiral Ozawa's decoy force, leaving Admirals Sprague's jeep carriers and Admiral Oldendorf's elderly battleships to fight the battle. The IJN had the superior firepower in this, the largest sea battle in history, yet somehow the USN won it.
