Synopsis: While there is a perennial interest in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars and in Nelson himself, there is no reference work that chronicles the captains of his ships, their social origins, their characters and their lives beyond their service under Nelson.
Nelson's Band of Brothers is researched and written by distinguished historians, descendants of Nelson's officers, and members of the 1805 Club. This new volume includes concise biographies of one hundred officers who fought with Nelson in his three great battles. Of real significance are the specially commissioned photographs of all the monuments and memorials to Nelson's captains with descriptions, transcriptions of epitaphs, and directions to enable the readers to find them. Part travel book, part biography, and part testimony to Nelson's faithful officers, Nelson's Band of Brothers provides the opportunity to rediscover one hundred naval heroes.
