This second volume of John Sugden's biography of Nelson does not disappoint. After impatiently waiting for its publication, John Sugden's scholarship once again, brings Nelson alive and shows us, warts and all,
the man who was perhaps Britain's greatest warrior. It's essential reading for children of a certain age and adults alike if we are to understand our nation's history and appreciate the horrors and grimness of armed conflict
to which we resort when threatened with conquest.
