Details: Admiral Lord Nelson was arguably Britain’s greatest naval hero and the victor of many battles against Napoleonic France—especially that of Trafalgar, in which he died in October 1805. His tactic of constant aggression, regardless of numbers, was as controversial as his love life with the beautiful, married Emma, Lady Hamilton. Historian Andrew Roberts explores Horatio Nelson’s life and leadership.
