The death of Nelson is a well-known story, but most people know much less of the battle in which he died: the single afternoon, off the coast of southern Spain, which put an end for ever to Napoleon's hope of invading England, and established a British supremacy at sea which lasted until the age of air power. David Howarth offers a masterly reconstruction of the background to the conflict, the battle itself and a deeply moving account of the fate of Nelson and the others who died in this tumultuous clash at sea.
