Nelson the Commander (Penguin Classic Military History .  . In other books I've read about British naval history, unless they dealt with a period as late as WWII, the early Bennett does an excellent job of examining Nelson's career and his strengths and weaknesses as a commander. ASIN. He does not succumb to either idolization of Nelson or go to the other extreme of trashing him.

Nearly two centuries after his death, does Nelson deserve his reputation as one of the world's great commanders?Nelson's triumphs have so caught the public imagination that his failures are barely remembered.

Though neither the Russians nor the Irish deny Nelson a niche in history's hall of fame, does he merit the supreme place that England accords him? Trafalgar was, after all, his only victory over an enemy fleet at sea: at Copenhagen and the Nile he destroyed ships at anchor. Did his strategy match his tactical skill? To what purpose did he pursue Villeneuve across the Atlantic to the West Indies - and back again?

Bennett, Geoffrey Martin (1972). The Trafalgar Companion: A Guide to History's Most Famous Sea Battle and the Life of Admiral Lord Nelson. Aurum Press, London, 448 pages.

Geoffrey Bennett served in the royal navy for 35 years and had the unusual experience of crewing a replica ship-of-the-line: he is therefore well qualified to describe the great age of fighting sail, its ships and weapons and how they were manned, and the strategy and tactics of the napoleonic wars. His analysis of nelson's campaigns and battles is the first by a professional naval officer since that of Admiral Mahan in 1897. Captain Bennett sets Nelson's failures at Tenerife and Boulogne against his triumphs at Cape St Vincent, the Nile, Copenhagen, and Trafalgar. He does not minimize the consequences of Nelson's passion for Emma Hamilton - the judicial murder of Caracciolo and such a flagrant disregard for orders that he was made to strike his flag.
