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

Not enough on his personal relationships and a lot on minute detail of battles

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.

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.

Superbly narrated and written with care and feeling, this account of Nelson's life is inspiring as it is informative. Highly recommended.
I bailed out after 3 hours as I had to concentrate too hard due to the outrageous accent of the narrator. Shame.
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.
