Nelson in the Caribbean: The Hero Emerges, 1784-1787.
Callo explores a period that other Nelson biographers often neglect - the 1780's. He reveals how Nelson at age 25 began to demonstrate the heroism and leadership that would eventually make him the most famous naval hero of history. This honest tale is both romantic and instructive and appeals to all types of readers. Admiral Callo has written two previous popular books on Nelson. With woodcuts from a rare Nelson book, illustrations from the Maritime Museum at Greenwich, and a fwd by Stephen Howarth. Originally published at $34.95. Naval Institute Press, 2003. Hb, dj.
