Sintesi dell'editore

Having entered the British Navy at the age of 12, Horatio Lord Nelson achieved the rank of captain at the age of 20. As captain, he was quickly recognized as a magnetic and controversial figure. He triumphed at Cape St. Vincent and the Nile, but failed at Tenefife and Boulogne. With the glories of Copenhagen and Trafalgar yet ahead of him, his ardent passion for Emma Hamilton, the wife of a British Ambassador, cast a heavy shadow over his career.

Audacious in battle (he once ignored a superior's order to cease action at Copenhagen by putting his telescope to his blind eye and saying he could not see the signal) and winner of some of Britain's greatest victories, Nelson possessed an extraordinary amount dash and courage, thus rendering him one of history's great romantic figures.

great story!

always love Frederick Davidson narrating, and this is a wonderful, if biased, biography of one of the most interesting individuals in modern British history.

Great story ruined

Who hired this narrator?. He sounds like he is straight out of a Dickens novel. Great story but unlistenable.

The worst biography of Nelson ever.

Struggled with This One

I am sure the contents of this audio book are very interesting but I really can't get on with the accent and tone of the narrator. I've stuck with it for about an hour now but I am continually finding myself having to rewind as I have lost concentration on it. This has not happened with any of the other audio books I have downloaded. I'm sure it is just a personal thing but I would advise you to listen to sample recording carefully and ask yourself whether you can engage with that voice for a prolonged period of time.

Nelson review

The book was full of fact but not that interestingly put forward. The orator was monotone and you have to concentrate hard to maintain focus.
