Trafalgar's Lost Hero by Max Adams
Book DescriptionPublished on the 200th anniversary of Trafalgar, this superbly written biography rescues an unsung British naval hero from obscurity Admiral Lord Cuthbert Collingwood (1748 - 1810) was one of the great British naval commanders of the Napoleonic Wars the man whose ship led the British fleet as it bore down on the French and Spanish line at Trafalgar, and who succeeded Admiral Horatio Nelson as the commander of the Mediterranean fleet. Yet despite his brilliance as a sailor, his valor in battle, and his skills as a statesman and diplomat, the modest, reserved Collingwood has always been overshadowed by his good friend, the daring, flamboyant Nelson. This biography at last redresses the balance, offering a riveting account of Collingwood's exemplary naval career.
