Horatio Nelson is a lively, dramatized telling of the astonishingly brave and battle-tested life of Lord Nelson, the British Royal Navy hero during the Napoleonic Wars, and one of England’s most renowned and beloved war heroes.
John Graham narrates the events with a warm voice like a creaking ship drifting on a calm sea. Edmund Pegge plays the title role of Nelson with fervent nobility, while Emma Hamilton, Nelson’s beautiful, passionate mistress and wife of diplomat Sir William Hamilton, is performed with alluringly romantic inflection by Joanna Wake.
The part of Horatio Nelson is played by Edmund Pegge and the part of Emma Hamilton is played by Joanna Wake. Other parts are played by Michael Sheard and Robert Rietty.
The presentation was excellent. The content was better than a quick Google search but the information provided is not for the serious student of history. If you need a quick understanding of Horatio, this is the book for you. But do not waste your time looking for something to use as a reference.
