Part of the new Ladybird Expert series Nelson- Battle of the Nile is an accessible and authoritative introduction to the naval battle that established Nelson's fame.

Written by historian, archaeologist, and broadcaster Sam Willis, Nelson- Battle of the Nile details the British Royal Navy's glorious defeat of the French naval expedition, thwarting Napoleon's plans to invade Egypt, jeopardizing Britain's trade routes and stake in India.

The only way to stop Napoleon seemed to be at sea, and although Britain claimed victory in Aboukir Bay, the war was far from over...

You'll learn how the roots of this significant battle lie in the French Revolution, track Napoleon's rise to prominence and the effect of France's move from revolution to dictatorship on the balance of power in Europe. This book will take you though the dramatic turning points of the battle and Nelson's celebrated tactical leadership.
