I. LORD BARHAM'S STRATEGY
We have examined Napoleon's plan of action, the way in which its execution was begun by Ganteaume, Villeneuve and Gravina, and the way in which the English squadron commanders met the situation. But what had the supreme command been doing all this time? To-day please imagine yourself in Lord Barham's office in the Admiralty. Look over the reports which came in to him, estimate the situation from his point of view, and see what you think of his decisions.
