1 Lee, Christopher Nelson and Napoleon - The Long Haul to Trafalgar
London Headline 2004 0755310411 / 9780755310418 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. First edition, First printing. xvii + 396 pages. 19 illustrations. 3 maps. In his inimitable style, Christopher Lee re-examines the myths of the Battle of Trafalgar. He plots the megalomania of Napoleon to invade England and the single-minded ambition of Admiral Nelson to seek glory and prizes. He debunks the legend that the French and Spanish sailors were cowardly and shows how Villeneuve had worked out Nelson's famous plan of attack, which Lee argues failed anyway, and demonstrates how Trafalgar could easily have gone against Nelson. Through the prism of the events of the preceding years, Lee paints a picture of the personalities and the intrigues that were operating at Trafalgar, and particularly of the creation of a national hero in Nelson and his intense rivalry with Napoleon.
