Nelson, Ernle Bradford

535 printed pages
A gripping biography of Admiral Nelson, Napoleonic War hero and one of Britain’s greatest naval tacticians.
As a naval commander, Admiral Nelson was an inspiring hero, honored to this very day as the essence of bravery. In his private life, he was a cad, conducting a scandalous openly adulterous affair with Lady Emma Hamilton and humiliating her cuckold husband.
In victories at sea and in the boudoir, Horatio Nelson was an indomitable conqueror deserving of his immortal reputation. He was the sworn enemy of Napoleon and the French, and considered himself a failure if a single enemy ship escaped destruction. His strategies to achieve this end are still studied and marveled at.
Ernle Bradford, an enthusiastic sailor and expert in navel topics, brilliantly recounts the events of Nelson’s life and details the high-seas warfare of this thrilling period in British history.
