    Nelson's reputation as the ultimate naval hero seems unassailable but, as Geoffrey Bennett points out, Trafalgar was his only victorious sea battle (at Copenhagen and the Nile he destroyed ships at anchor) and his disregard of orders and unconventional personal life raise questions about his character and judgement. This biography seeks to assess his remarkable life and career and objectively appraise his stature as a naval commander.
