The Pursuit of Victory: The Life And Achievement of Horatio Nelson 2005 г 912 стр ISBN 046503764X инфо 4115n.

Book DescriptionA dazzling biography that is destined to be the definitive account of Horatio Nelson's life for generations How did Horatio Nelson achieve such extraordinary success? In this authoritative biащщьфography, the eminent scholar Roger Knight places him firmly in the context of the Royal Navy of the time Nelson was passionate and relentless from the outset of his career; his charisma and his coolness in battle are legendary But his success depended also on the strбйбыъength of intelligence available to him, the quality of the ships he commanded, the potency of his guns, and the skill of his seamen Based on a vast array of new sources, this biography demolishes many of the myths that have for two centuries surrounded Nelson Knight demonstrates that this great Romantic hero was in his time a shrewd political operator and often a difficult subordinate He was occasionally na•ve, often impatient, and only happy when completely in command Readers wбрпыщill emerge from this biography with a greatly enriched understanding of this singular man-one who was brilliant, severely flawed, and never to be crossed "A wonderfully clear portrait of a complex man, seen squarely in his time There is every reason to think that this superb work will become the definitive Nelson biography" (The Economist).
