Overview

Nelson's Victory is a vivid, gripping account of our greatest naval hero; Jackson's command of detail and story make this one of the best brief maritime narratives ever written. NICHOLAS LEZARD

The fourth title in Kevin Jackson’s magnificent maritime history series, Nelson’s Victory, explores the remarkable achievements of the British naval and national hero Horatio Nelson and his victory and death at The Battle of Trafalgar. As with other titles in the series, Jackson demolishes the myths that abound about Nelson’s nature and reveals the real man behind hyperbole. Nelson was a smooth operator who demonstrated considerable political instincts and worked his way up the naval ladder with ruthless ambition.

"History as you long to read it, charismatic, concise and unputdownable." HORATIO CLARE
