The story of Horatio Nelsons life - his naval glory, public fame, charismatic leadership, scandalous romance, and untimely death as he led the British to victory at the Battle of Trafalgar - has ensured his enduring position as Englands favouriteMoreThe story of Horatio Nelsons life - his naval glory, public fame, charismatic leadership, scandalous romance, and untimely death as he led the British to victory at the Battle of Trafalgar - has ensured his enduring position as Englands favourite hero. This engaging, full-length biography of Nelson (1758-1805) presents a gripping account of his climb to fame as well as the fascinating details of his personal and emotional life. A man of contradictions, Nelson emerges in this biography as a ruthless and aggressive leader, the epitome of a fighting commander- an ambitious attention-seeker capable of self-pity, self-delusion, and childish behaviour- yet to be admired for his transcendent courage, kindness and leadership skills, which inspired love and affection in those he led.
