Description
In this concluding volume of his epic two-part biography of Britain's most celebrated naval commander, following Nelson: A Dream of Glory, John Sugden separates fact from myth to offer a powerful portrait of Horatio Nelson. As in the earlier book, Sugden has uncovered overlooked primary documents, letters, and diaries to reveal the interior lives, for example, of Nelson's wife Fanny, as well as Emma, Lady Hamilton, who nursed the war-weary hero back to health in Naples and London after his victory at Cape St. Vincent in 1797.

"This superb warts-and-all biography details the awe-inspiring ups and downs of the final eight years of British Admiral Horatio Nelson's life.... In addition to expertly depicting the intricacies of maritime warfare, Sugden's meticulously researched, highly readable work will no doubt be the definitive portrait of a brilliant, fearless, inspiring warrior beset by flaws and vulnerabilities."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
