Nelson, Navy & Nation: The Royal Navy And The British People, 1688–1815

Regular price £20.00 Sale

Nelson, Navy and Nation seeks to explore the Royal Navy’s relationship with Britain from the Glorious Revolution to the Napoleonic Wars, encompassing three central themes: the realities of naval life in this period, the navy’s connection to society, culture and national identity, and the story of Nelson’s life and career.

A series of chapters contributed by a distinguished panel of leading authors and historians will illuminate these themes through discrete but interconnected topics to give a fascinating contextual overview of life in Nelson’s Navy, internal and external perceptions of the Royal Navy and changes in these perspectives throughout the period 1688–1815, and the life and career of Admiral Horatio Nelson himself. Replete with stunning imagery featuring historical artworks, paintings and objects from the collections of the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, the book will combine accessible narrative history for the general reader with superb visual appeal, forming an ideal companion to the Museum’s permanent ‘Nelson, Navy and Nation’ gallery.
