"A biography that...brings clarity, reliability, convincing judgments and enthusiasm to Horatio Nelson...."
From the Publisher
Annotation Hibbert's biography of Lord Nelson traces the development of his career and character, rather than his innovations in naval tactics and strategies.
Editors Note In this colorful, absorbing tale of Nelson's life on and off the high seas, Hibbert illuminates the admiral's personality, his personal and political friendships, his relationship with Sir William Hamilton, and his passionate love affair with Hamilton's wife, the beautiful Lady Emma, daughter of a blacksmith and once a London prostitute. Whether quarreling with royalty, wooing beautiful women around the world, or winning history's most famous sea battles, Hibbert's irascible Nelson is a character for all times.
