Nelson

Nelson
David Walder
With a personality invented to inspire historical novelists, Horatio Nelson lived briefly, successfully, and on the whole unhapilly. Nelson won three great fleet actions -- The Nile, Copenhagen, and Trafalgar. He lost his heart to a most unsuitable married woman, at a time when he was already married to a woman with whom he could find no fault. Waldcer's biography is sympathetic, intelligent, thorough, and out of print (although easily found used at amazon or aLibris)
