Horatio Nelson PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Horatio Nelson free pdf Marianne Czisnik illuminates the life and reputation of Britain's most famous admiral in a fresh and groundbreaking manner. Some of the most controversial aspects of his life and career are explored, such as his involvement in the defeat of the Neapolitan revolution and his notorious love affair with Lady Hamilton. Along the way, new research provides original insights into the character of this complex man and the way his image was developed by successive generations of biographers and naval historians. The second part traces how the figure of Nelson has evolved in the popular imagination during the two hundred years since his death. This includes an examination of imagery, propaganda and fiction, as well as treatments of the admiral from a French, Spanish and German perspective. In this distinctive contribution to Nelson literature, Czisnik expertly reveals how the real man has been obscured, distorted and misunderstood by those for whom the image was more important than the reality.
