schema:reviewBody""Seize, Burn or Sink: The Thoughts and Words of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson contains more than 3,000 quotations from Horatio Nelson, the most famous leader in British naval history. Taken from both official and personal letters, these quotes bring insight to the thoughts and character of the greatest fighting admiral who ever lived. Steven E. Maffeo has narrowed more than 4,000 letters and documents of Nelson's writing to highlight his commentary. Organized chronologically by topic, Nelson's "cheerful, urgent, but often wayward and usually unpunctuated stream of consciousness" tackles everything from death and desertion to leadership and loyalty. A detailed index is also included for readers wishing to know Nelson's opinion on a specific individual, event, or place." "Seize, Burn, or Sink is a goldmine of information and insight on this extraordinary man who has continued to capture the imagination of individuals for generations. Readers and historians engrossed with the "age of sail" and the late eighteenth century are finally presented with a firsthand look at Nelson's words gathered in one convenient source. Moreover, the addition of a chronology of Nelson's life, a bibliography, maps, and photos further enhance the usefulness of his quotes."--BOOK JACKET."
