The Nelson Touch

The Life and Legend of Horatio Nelson

Terry Coleman

Here is a vivid account of Nelson's life, from his childhood and early career at sea to gripping accounts of his greatest sea battles. What emerges is a man of strength of mind amounting to genius, frequently generous, always fascinated with women, often uneasy with his superior officers, and absolutely fearless. Nelson was a ruthless commander, whose instinct was not just to defeat the enemy but to annihilate him. This supurbly written biography will prove essential for giving readers a true feel for the life of this military hero.
