Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0870219901, Hardcover)
The Trafalgar Roll, originally published in 1913, was intended to record and honor the men who fought at Trafalgar in the same way that earlier publications had done for the soldiers at Blenheim and Waterloo. Over 1250 officers - from Nelson himself to midshipmen, surgeons, clerks, boatswains and carpenters - are listed, with the careers of the majority being chronicled in detail. In addition a brief service history of each ship, down to the little schooner Pickle, is included. A remarkable labor of research at the time it is now an invaluable reference work for anyone with a serious interest in Nelson's navy. A new introduction by the distinguished naval historian Colin White explains the significance of the work and places it in context for the modern historian and enthusiast.
