NELSON: THE MAN AND THE LEGEND – Buy it here
A revisionist biography of a legendary hero who was undoubtedly a naval hero but also ruthless and a natural born predator, who came to see himself as the instrument of God. The first biography to be based on an original study of a mass of Nelson’s own manuscript letters and papers, many previously unseen and unused.
“Wittily ruthless” — Sunday Times. “Utterly convincing. A real pleasure” – London Evening Standard. “In the best tradition of revisionist history, well researched, at odds with received wisdom, and long overdue” — Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph.
