    schema:description "Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson was a colourful and complex character whose supremely successful naval career quickly attained legendary proportions. By 1803 he was Britain's paramount hero and already maimed with the loss of an arm and blind in one eye. He returned to war and spent a further two years at sea before cementing his mythical status in death and victory at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Today, two centuries on, the 'immortal memory' of Nelson shows no sign of fading. In this book, leading historians and Nelson authorities provide a radical reappraisal of key aspects of his life and legacy: the seamanship and leadership on which his immediate fame was built; his relationships with friends, shipmates, women and the British public as a whole; the construction and commemoration of the Nelson legend; his international reputation and its evolution down the years. Admiral Lord Nelson: Context and Legacy sheds fresh light on this most studied of lives and provides timely new insights into an enduring icon."@en ;
