The Mauritius Campaign was an endeavour by the Matelots to nick two small islands off the coast of Africa from the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys. Predictably enough, we won.

The Frogs did win one naval battle - the only victory for them in the entire campaign - when a squadron of Royal Navy frigates attempting to attack the French naval forces cowering in Port Louis hit an unchartered sandbank and got pounded between the frog ships and the frog onshore artillery.
