Trafalgar’s Lost Hero introduces the man whose real-life exploits have been attributed to the likes of Horatio Alger and Jack Aubrey. Never seeking the public acclaim craved by his closest friend and comrade Horatio Nelson, Cuthbert Collingwood was instrumental in forcing the combined French and Spanish fleets into the fateful battle, disabling the enemy’s flagship almost before the fight had begun, and taking command of the British fleet after Nelson’s death. Bristling with action, packed with never-before-published accounts of major engagements from Collingwood’s secret letter book, and bringing a fresh perspective to Britain’s most celebrated naval victory, Trafalgar’s Lost Hero is truly a treat for lovers of naval history and real-life adventure, and a rousing story well told.
