Author Name    Schom, Alan.

Title   TRAFALGAR: COUNTDOWN TO BATTLE 1803-1805.

Publisher    Penguin, London, 1992, 2nd printing.

Seller ID   24311

421 pp, 7 3/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 01401111646 B&w illustrations. "In this panoramic account of events from the creation of Napoleon's menacing flotilla to Nelson's majestic funeral Schom tells the complete story for the first time. He describes in compelling detail - and usually in the words of contemporaries - Napoleon's coronation, Prime Minister Pitt's robust response to the threat of invasion, the breakneck build-up to battle and the crucial role of Admiral Cornwallis, the 'unob t r u s i v e hero' who ought to rank with Nelson as a national saviour. Trafalgar was a moment of almost unparalleled glory for Britain; this superb piece of historical detection and vivid story-telling does it full justice at last." Interior - v er y li gh t br owning to pages, soft bump at bottom corner of first 125 pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - very light browning to edges of text block, small crease/bump at bottom corner of front cover. Very Go od
