This book is not only for Naval experts, but for any person who wishes to know the unique charm of our best-loved hero, so I have endeavoured to show Nelson, not only as the greatest war-strategist and tactician in history, but also as the foremost leader of men amongst the warriors of the world. In order to do this it is necessary to give authentic stories of his life, and also to show his character as revealed in his letters to his greatest friend, Captain Locker, and other people.

British Battles: The Front Lines of History in Colour Photographs by Ken & Denise Guest (£11.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9780007651269]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “The Battle of Culloden in 1746 was the last full-scale land battle to be fought on British soil. While almost every other European country has become a battleground since then, for the last 250 years Britain has been spared the horrors of invasion and occupation. Yet all over England and Scotland there are traces of our brutal past. There are tangible signs like monuments to the dead or the bullet holes in the door of Alton church. Local place names like Bloody Meadow keep alive the memory of the hideous slaughter that followed the defeat of several medieval armies.

In 1995 English Heritage published a register of battlefields, focusing attention on 44 sites. Intended to provide guidance for those involved in conservation, the register identifies the geographical location and highlights key features which deserve special care because of their historic significance. British Battles includes all of these historically important engagements and, employing the same criteria, covers the ten greatest battles in Scotland from Stirling Bridge and the war against Edward I to Culloden and the defeat of the Jacobite cause.

British Battles is unlike all previous accounts of the battles that shaped our history. By combining eyewitness descriptions with the researches of modern re-enactors, British Battles reveals what it was like for the ordinary soldiers. Over the course of seven centuries of warfare, weapons and tactics changed considerably. But for the men in the frontline, and the women and children often accompanying an army into battle, the experience was disagreeably similar: long marches over dirt roads, bad weather, illness and disease; the terror of close quarter battle and the agonising medical treatment that was the only hope of survival for the wounded..”
