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.

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.
Not enough on his personal relationships and a lot on minute detail of battles
"Great story ruined"
Who hired this narrator?. He sounds like he is straight out of a Dickens novel. Great story but unlistenable.
always love Frederick Davidson narrating, and this is a wonderful, if biased, biography of one of the most interesting individuals in modern British history.
"Dull and facile"
The worst biography of Nelson ever.
