Description - Nelson's Ships by Derek Gardner
A unique tribute published to commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar, in which Admiral Horatio Nelson secured British supremacy of the seas at the cost of his own life. No man of action in British history has seized and held public affection more firmly than Nelson. His defeat of the French fleet in October 1805 off Cape Trafalgar was one of the most decisive battles in the history of the Royal Navy, and was conducted with not a single British ship lost. Few ships escaped severe punishment, however, and loss of life on both sides was tragically high.
