Customer Review

on 26 May 2008
Wow. I've read dozens of military history books, but not many regarding this era, and I must confess it was a fabulous and very informative read.
There are so many excerpts from the diaries of the actual people who fought in these battles that the reader quickly feels transported back in time and caught up in the heat of events. When most people think of Nelson they think only of Trafalgar, whereas this book gives a great insight into the less well known battles and events of the time. I appreciate that the author has written a separate book on Trafalgar, but my only criticism of this book is that Trafalgar is barely mentioned at all and I would have liked to read at least a chapter on the detail of it here. That aside, I have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
