Rezension: "This is a splendid biography, not only because it is well written and well researched, but also because it neither seeks to demean the hero nor excuse the man. Heroism becomes the more remarkable when it is shown by people who in other ways are very like ourselves." L.G. Mitchell, Times Literary Supplement; "A formidable addition to the already crowded Nelson canon... Vincent's publishers have done him proud. There are excellent maps and battle diagrams; the illustrations are copious, and many have rarely been seen before." Paul Johnson, Literary Review; "This full-blown biography offers a profusion of detail about Nelson's health and finances, his way with the welfare and discipline of his men and how his battles were fought and usually won... A true portrait of an extraordinary man." Tom Pocock, Spectator; "This is a wonderful book, the best modern biography of Britain's greatest admiral." John Keegan, Daily Telegraph; "Edgar Vincent has written a robust, level-headed account of Nelson's life." Adam Preston, Financial Times; "A stately literary battleship, bristling with truly terrifying military and biographical detail." Sunday Telegraph"
