The Trafalgar Chronicle
Contributors to The Trafalgar Chronicle are the leading experts in their field, whether they are Professor John Hattendorf from the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, RI, Professor Andrew Lambert from King’s College, London, or antiquarians and enthusiasts.
Each volume is themed and this new edition contains a particularly Anglo-American flavor, focusing on North America and North Americans in Nelson’s Navy, with one article, for example, describing how the US National anthem was composed onboard a British warship. More than eighteen articles offer a huge wealth of information and new research and include such diverse subjects as the true colors of Victory and the story of the little known American, Sir Isaac Coffin, who helped carry the pall at Nelson’s funeral. Handsomely illustrated throughout, this yearbook casts intriguing light on that era of history which forever fascinates naval enthusiasts and historians alike.
