For God and Glory: Lord Nelson and His Way of War

Front Cover
Naval Institute Press, 2003 - 250 pages
"As a professional military analyst who has devoted his career to researching, writing, and teaching about the tactics and operational art of warfare, Hayward draws on his own training and experience to view the admiral's war fighting from a vantage point not accessible to many of Nelson's leading biographers. He breaks free from the constraints of chronology to explore in greater-than-usual depth and coherence the key aspects of Nelson's fighting style and to answer questions not previously raised about that style and its supporting ideas, including to what degree Nelson's style can be adopted by modern warriors. For Nelson scholars and enthusiasts this book serves as a companion to the more traditional studies of the great admiral. For students of warfare it provides a professional guide to the period."--BOOK JACKET.
