Listen in app
Step aboard the HMS History and set sail on an epic voyage with "The Letters & Journals of Lord Nelson,” brought to life by the incomparable Charles Dance.

Discover the remarkable life of Viscount Horatio Nelson (1758-1805), the legendary "Hero" of his time. As a daring commander and strategic genius, Nelson's legacy is woven into the fabric of British naval history. From his triumph at the Battle of Cape St Vincent to the awe-inspiring victories at the Nile (1798) and Copenhagen (1801), his story unfolds with unparalleled drama.

Delve into the complex tapestry of Nelson's life, marked by both brilliance and scandal. His unapologetic arrogance stands in stark contrast to his passionate, scandalous love affair with the captivating Emma Hamilton.

But the ultimate chapter of his saga is written in blood on the decks of the HMS Victory. On the fateful day of October 21, 1805, Lord Nelson met his heroic end, struck down by a musket shot during the Battle of Trafalgar, securing the greatest naval victory in Royal Navy history.

In "The Letters & Journals of Lord Nelson," you'll experience history like never before. Immerse yourself in the intimate words of the man himself, as his personal letters and journals reveal the audacious exploits and deep emotions of England's greatest hero.

Also available as part of the CLASSIC LETTERS & JOURNALS BOX SET, a sixteen hour, seven-volume edition featuring the letters and journals of Lord Nelson, Charlotte Brontë, Scott of the Antarctic, Queen Victoria, Lord Byron, Jane Austen and Dorothy Wordsworth. Performed by Charles Dance, Imogen Stubbs, Edward Fox, Virginia McKenna, Robert Powell, Fiona Shaw and Jenny Agutter.
