Horatio Nelson - A different point of view

Turner's depiction of HMS Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805, when Horatio Nelson ended Napoleon's plans to invade Britain.

Nelson was so extraordinary a hero, and so fallible a man, it might seem unlikely that he would have much to teach us, but we think he does.

And we think he has something to say to the current leaders of Britain and to the lesser-known, who are running parties such as UKIP.

In Horatio Nelson, A Different Point of View we describe vital lessons from England's greatest sailor, who began life on board ship as a terribly seasick, insubordinate twelve-year-old.
