Men of Honour, “Trafalgar and the Making of the English Hero” Adam Nicolson (History)

Impeccably researched, sets Trafalgar within the wider context of social and economic change at the end of the 18c. Dispels a few myths along the way. Amazing, the Royal Navy blasts hell out of the enemy till they surrender or start to sink, then risk life & limb to rescue the survivors. It is also a cracking good read.
