Two hundred years ago, Napoleon Bonaparte dominated Europe and threatened Britain with invasion. Against him stood the Royal Navy and the already legendary Admiral Horatio Nelson. In October 1805, a massive naval battle off the coast of Spain decided mastery of the seas, and over the following days and nights, the battleships and their exhausted crews endured a gale of awesome fury. The authors tell this story through the diaries, letters, and memoirs of the men involved, as well as through the eyes of their wives and children.

'Trafalgar' takes readers from the claustrophobic turmoil of a gun-deck in battle, to the desperation of men pumping water from sinking hulls adrift in hurricane force winds, describing the demands of life at sea, and what people had suffered and achieved in the years that led up to the battle.
