"For God and Glory stands apart from the usual biographical-social treatment that is commonplace nowadays and makes a distinct and important contribution to the field. The author's experience and perspective make him uniquely situated to comment on important aspects of the admiral's career."--Barry Gough, author of Fighting Sail on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay
Taking a highly original, thematic approach to the study of Horatio Lord Nelson, Joel Hayward analyzes the admiral's unique warfighting style, doctrine, tactics, and operational art, his command and leadership abilities, and his attitudes and beliefs. But Hayward reveals how all these elements combined to form the man whose infectious ethos spread through his entire force. He shows that Nelson's creative genius, excitable and intense personality, dramatic visage, and fervor for all things martial not only inspired courage and loyalty but so dazzled and inflamed the hearts and minds of his men that he reached near cult status in his lifetime.
