By 1803 Napoleon Bonaparte was master of continental Europe and readying his troops for the invasion of England. The decisive action at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805, under the command of Vice Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson, established British naval superiority and effectively made a French invasion impossible. Drawn from the eye-witness accounts of those who were there, this book evokes, with stunning immediacy, one of the most important naval battles in history.
