Memoirs of the Life of Vice-Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson, Volume 1
T. and W. Boone, 1849 - 559 pagina's
Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson is a singular figure in the history of the Royal Navy. Noted for his inspirational leadership, keen grasp of strategy and unconventional tactics, Nelson engineered a number of decisive victories for the Royal Navy. Wounded several times in combat—losing one arm and sight in one eye—Nelson is most famous for the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar, in which he was shot and killed in combat. This two-volume biography of Nelson, published in 1849, draws on his private correspondence to present a full picture of one of history's most brilliant commanders.
