NELSON’S MEDITERRANEAN COMMAND

NELSON’S MEDITERRANEAN COMMAND
 

RRP: £14.99
OUR PRICE: £3.99  Winter Sale Price £3.19

This important addition to Nelsonia covers the great man's Mediterrannean deployment against Bonaparte's fleet at Toulon in 1798, and Nelson's battles not only against the French, but his own rival Admirals in the Royal Navy, one of whom, Sir John Orde, even challenged him to a duel over their seniority.
In 1798 Napoleon Bonaparte, already all but Master of Europe, assembled a formidable expeditionary force at Toulon. While its purpose was unknown there was every reason to believe that Great Britain was its ultimate destination and the Nation was on invasion alert. The overwhelming British priority was for a fleet to be assembled and sent to the Mediterranean to destroy this threat before the French force could set sail. The burning issue was which of four Royal Naval flag officers should command this vital mission. The strong field in order of seniority was Admiral The Earl St Vincent, Rear Admirals Sir William Parker, Sir John Orde and Sir Horatio Nelson. The choice of Nelson who went on the win the Battle of Nice provoked great anger and even a challenge by Orde for a duel, only prevented by the King's intervention. Nelson's and Orde's acrimonious relationship erupted in the months before the Battle of Trafalgar and is well documented in this fascinating book.
