Description

While there is a perennial interest in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars and in Nelson himself, there is no reference work that chronicles all the captains of his ships, their social origins, their characters and the achievements in their lives beyond their service under Nelson.

Nelson’s Band of Brothers, researched and written by distinguished historians, descendants of some of Nelson’s officers, and members of the 1805 Club, presents concise biographies of those officers who fought with Nelson in his three great battles, with superb colour illustration throughout.

Nelson first gave the name of ‘band of brothers’ to the officers who had commanded ships of his fleet at the battle of the Nile (1798). This new volume will include 100 officers, ranging from lieutenants in command of gunboats at the battle of Copenhagen (1801) through captains of line-of- battle ships at the Nile and at Trafalgar (1805), to admirals in command of squadrons in his fleets. Of real significance are the specially commissioned photographs of all the monuments and memorials to Nelson’s captains, descriptions with transcriptions of epitaphs, and clear directions to enable the readers to find them.

Part travel book, part biography and moving testimony to Nelson’s faithful captains, Nelson’s Band of Brothers presents the opportunity to rediscover 100 local heroes.

About The Author

Frances and Michael Holmes

We love living in Norwich and not only enjoy researching and documenting projects but also being able to share our work. We are the first to admit that we are more “enthusiasts” than historians and although we set ourselves high standards, we believe that such activity should be fun. As a team we can each work to our strengths which allows us to present our work in a variety of media: books, websites, presentations and film.

Michael has lived in Norwich all of his life, Frances arrived in 1983 for a year but could never find a good enough reason to leave! After a career in IT, Michael is the techie whilst Frances’ background, involving links with both the corporate and voluntary sectors, is used to good effect in organising and researching. We particularly enjoy meeting and working with a huge range of people from many different backgrounds and helping to preserve and promote Norwich’s rich heritage.
