Overview

Legacy of Leadership is a penetrating view of the exceptional leadership of Vice Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, one of history's most successful naval commanders. In addition to Nelson's profound impact on the course of history, his leadership has altered the understanding and model of naval combat forever.

Nelson not only applied winning tactics in crucial situations, he demonstrated the special importance of establishing a winning doctrine among his subordinates. His leadership not only shaped the British Royal Navy that ruled the waves in the century following his astonishing victories, it was a powerful influence on the development of sea power to the present day.

By outlining five battles, author Joe Callo shows how Nelson matched his tactics to the long term naval strategy of Great Britain. This is a contemporary analysis of what made the hero of the battles of the Nile, Copenhagen, and Trafalgar so spectacularly successful in the ultimate test of combat.

Unlike other Nelson biographies, which describe the astonishing and frequently controversial events of his life, Legacy of Leadership goes beyond those events to explore the personal qualities that made him the unique leader that he was. The lessons in leadership that emerge from his career transcend time and circumstances. They are as relevant today as they were in Nelson's time.
