Nelson the Admiral by Colin White

Book Description

"Nelson the Admiral" draws together all the recent research into Nelson's battles in a provocative book, set for publication on the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. The author, Colin White, is one of the leading scholars in the field. He draws on his previous detailed research and writings on Nelson's battles, together with exciting new material that is emerging as a result of the Nelson Letters Project on which he has been recently engaged. He presents a new narrative for each of Nelson's main battles, based on the latest insights; a new analysis of his tactics based on hitherto unpublished material from Nelson's personal order books and battle plans; and a fresh assessment of Nelson's abilities as a naval commander. The end result is an up-to-date analysis of Nelson as a naval commander, showing how the British triumph at Trafalgar was the culmination of years of thought and experimentation on Nelson's part, and on the part of his contemporaries and predecessors.

Books By Author Colin White

Nelson by Colin White Nelson, Paperback (January 2010)

Horatio Nelson was one of the most successful leaders Britain has ever produced. A legend in his own lifetime, he has inspired many hundreds of books, but few of these concentrated on him as a naval commander.

1797 by Colin White 1797, Paperback (May 2006)

Takes a fresh look at a key year in Nelson's life. In this review of the victory at Cape St Vincent, and the defeat at Tenerife, this book aims to challenge some aspects of the familiar story. It is a demonstration of how modern scholarship can challenge the traditional view of Nelson.

Risk and Foreign Direct Investment by Colin White Risk and Foreign Direct Investment, Hardback (January 2006)
