    I read half the book...

    I read half of this book about England's and my favorite naval hero. This book covers Nelson's life from birth to the Battle of Cape St. Vincent. The book is definetly for the hard core Nelson fan and not for the genral public. It is well written and painstakingly detailed. No one could criticize the author's attention to detail. However, the author just didn't seem to capture the essence of Nelson for me. I couldn't stay engaged in the book, and I generally like long 600 plus page reads. I do fully intend to read his second book though which will include the famous battles of the Nile and Trafalgar. To the author's great credit: He does not try to speculate on unkowable information such as the psychological development of Nelson and the effect of having lost his mother so young. I hate biographies that do that!

    England's Greatest Hero

    The 1st of a two volume biography of Admiral Nelson is an informative work detailing much of Nelson's early career and life in the Royal Navy.If their was celebrity in the 18th century Nelson was it.Beloved by the public and his men he would go far.His one fault if any,was he didn't adhere to his superiors directives,but then again fortune favors the bold.He could and did get away with his cheekiness.Was great at public relations and showed his men that every hardship they endured so would he.Always led from the front.Not like today.Also an amputation is described in great detail,not for the faint of heart.
