As the bicentenary of Trafalgar approaches in 2005, Nelson seems to be constantly in the news. Discoveries of unpublished letters and other fascinating material among his papers are challenging the traditional stories about his battles and relationships.Colin White has been in the centre of all this new research and his new book, The Nelson Encyclopaedia, published by Chatham Publishing in association with the Royal Naval Museum, is already being hailed as a mould-breaking study of Britain's greatest hero.
"This multi-layered book brings the great man alive for a new generation." - Lloyds ListTo launch the book, Colin White will give a special lecture, illustrated with slides of material from the Royal Naval Museum's splendid Nelson collection. He will share some of his new insights and show how these are affecting the way Nelson is presented today.
"I really couldn't put this book down. Highly recommended." - The Nelson Dispatch
The lecture will be followed by tea and a book-signing.
