    One Response to “Trafalgar: 200”

    1. Mike Cunningham Says:

      I would argue that Nicolson’s other superb documentary on Nelson (Men of Honour (Trafalgar and the Making of the English Hero) gives the more balanced view of this naval Paladin, and the impact which his planning and tactical genius had on the wider history of the world today. As I posted in a book review on my own blog, this small shy man, suffering as he did from disabling injuries which would have flattened a lesser man, surfaced from anongst his contemporaries at the time when England needed him most, and he proved worthy indeed of the task laid out at Trafalgar!
