9780747559009: Nelson

Horatio Nelson was a naval genius and a natural born predator. In his private life as in war he was ruthless. A fanatic for duty, at times beyond all sense, he was also a royalist so infatuated with the divine right of kings that he began to see himself as an instrument of God. At the height of his fame Nelson was half unhinged: a generous man who wanted his wife dead; besotted with Emma Hamilton but jealously unsure of her; at odds with his honourable father; at law with his old mentor Earl St Vincent, and damning the Lords of the Admiralty as a set of beasts. Written with access to letters and documents and with previously unpublished material, Terry Coleman provides penetrating and true picture of Nelson as we have never seen him before.

Descrizione libro Bloomsbury Publishing PLC. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. UNUSED, GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, edgewear, 448 pages. Horatio Nelson never sailed in a ship named "HMS Audacious", but Terry Coleman's sympathetic and searching biography of England's most famous sea-warrior: Nelson: The Man and Legend suggests it would have been an entirely appropriate command. In an age when a fine line existed between fighting for national honour and fighting for plunder, Nelson was pluckier and luckier than most of his naval contemporaries. Helped by family connections, a talent for self-publicity and a stern devotion to the law of the land (and sea), he quickly rose through the Admiralty list during the tail-end of the American war, before coming to personify the British pursuit of Napoleon in the seas surrounding Europe. Coleman is excellent on the big battles--Tenerife, the Nile, Copenhagen and, of course, Trafalgar. He also sifts the evidence for and against Nelson in the various controversies that dogged his career: his pursuit of lowly commodores in the West Indies, mutineers and conspirators in his crew, republicans in Naples, and patrons and politicians at home. Coleman manages to be judicious without losing any of the colour of the story. And on the greatest controversy of all--Nelson's ménage à trois with Emma and William Hamilton--he lets the audacious facts speak for themselves. This is a very readable and enjoyable book, from which Nelson emerges a flawed hero, but a hero nonetheless, fully deserving his pedestal status amongst the pigeon-droppings of modern London.--Miles Taylor. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Horatio Nelson was a naval genius and a natural born predator. In his private life as in war he was ruthless. A fanatic for duty, at times beyond all sense, he was also a royalist so infatuated with the divine right of kings that he began to see himself as an instrument of God.
