Summary
Publisher description: Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson was a colorful and complex character, whose supremely successful naval career quickly attained legendary status. By 1803 he was Britain's paramount hero. Already maimed with the loss of an arm and blind in one eye, he returned to war and spent a further two years at sea before dying at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. In this book, leading historians provide a radical reappraisal of his life and times
