Synopses & Reviews
The battle of Trafalgar has now passed into national mythology. The expertise, courage, determination and confidence which gave Britain a victory of spectacular finality in October 1805 also provided her with one of her great legendary figures--a naval hero in life but much more like a national, if very secular, saint in death. However, legends have a habit of obscuring facts and having embodied themselves in the history books.
The best account of the Battle of Trafalgar, by a professional sailor and historian. Reissued in time for the build-up to the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
