Horatio Nelson was one of the most successful leaders Britain has ever produced. In this new edition of Nelson, the late Colin White offers a fascinating analysis of Nelson's tactics and leadership style through gripping narratives of all three of Nelson's great battles—the Nile, Copenhagen, and Trafalgar. He brilliantly shows how the British triumph at Trafalgar was the culmination of years of thought and experimentation on Nelson's part, and by his contemporaries and predecessors. He also uses new material to demonstrate Nelson's remarkable administrative skills, and his abilities as a diplomat and intelligence officer—aspects of his leadership that have not been fully highlighted before. The result is an enthrallingly different portrait of Nelson as an admiral more rounded and more insightful than any yet achieved.
