From the cover: “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. Errata slip tipped in at preface.”
