Nelson: The Essential Hero
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1617568171 | 2013 | 438 pages | 3 MB / 1 MB

As a naval commander he was an inspiring hero, honored to this very day as the essence of bravery. In his private life he was a cad, conducting a scandalous openly adulterous affair with Lady Emma Hamilton and humiliating her cuckold husband. In victories at sea and in the boudoir Horatio Nelson was an indomitable conqueror and deserving of his immortal reputation. He was the sworn enemy of Napoleon and the French and considered himself a failure if a single enemy ship escaped destruction. His strategies to achieve this end are still studied and marveled at. Author Ernle Bradford, himself a naval man and author of the bestselling THE GREAT SIEGE, brilliantly recounts the events of Nelson's life and details the naval warfare of the this thrilling period in British history.

The Nelson Riddle Orchestra was always great enough to play music for film and television soundtracks, and accompany the greatest of stars, including Louis Jordan, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, among many others. For the band to back up the 1963 version of the Oscar Peterson trio with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen might have created some tension, with Peterson always wanting to cut loose and go over the top as opposed to the silky smooth sound Riddle favored. ~ AllMusic
