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
“Kevin Jackson’s thrilling sea stories, told with verve, wit and dash, make the most gripping reading. Here are the men, women, ships and adventures which made so much of the modern world, and Britain’s place within it. Sir Francis Drake and Charles Darwin are lucky to have found such an erudite and elegant scribe as Kevin Jackson.” Horation Clare
