Nelson: A Personal History

Synopsis

"Christopher Hibbert recounts the events of Nelson's life, from the morning when the diminutive midshipman stood nervously on the dockyard at Chatham, wondering how to get aboard his ship and enter the strange world of the Navy, until the long afternoon when, as Admiral, he lay dying. Hibbert brilliantly illuminates Nelson's personality, his personal and political friendships, his relationship with Sir William Hamilton, and his passionate love affair with Hamilton's wife, the beautiful Emma - daughter of a blacksmith, once a London prostitute, and the mother of his adored illegitimate daughter."
