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for each of Nelson's main battles, based on the latest insights; a new analysis of his tactics based on hitherto unpublished material from Nelson's personal order books and battle plans; and a fresh assessment of Nelson's abilities as a naval commander.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.
