Trafalgar by David Howarth

Book Description

The death of Nelson is a well-known story, but most people know much less of the battle in which he died: the single afternoon, off the coast of southern Spain, which put an end for ever to Napoleon's hope of invading England, and established a British supremacy at sea which lasted until the age of air power. David Howarth offers a masterly reconstruction of the background to the conflict, the battle itself and a deeply moving account of the fate of Nelson and the others who died in this tumultuous clash at sea. 'One of the most moving studies of Nelson and his final battle that has yet been written' Sunday Times

Author Biography - David Howarth

David Howarth, who died in 1991, was one of Britain's best writers of historical events. He himself had worked as war correspondent for the BBC in the Second World War, reporting the chaos of Dunkirk, but with the fall of France he joined the Navy and then came under the command of the SOE (Special Operating Service) running clandestine operations between Shetland and Norway. For this he was awarded the highest honours that Norway could award a foreigner. His own naval experiences in wartime and those in peacetime as an experienced sailor and boatmaker in Shetland, allow him to write with great understanding about a battle amidst the perils of the sea,
