Is there anything left to say about Lord Nelson? Surprisingly, there is. Innumerable books have traced the admiral's career to his heroic death at Trafalgar, but here is the first full account of what happened to him afterwards. Amos and Roeder's admirably illustrated volume, full of fascinating but forgotten facts about the most lavish state funeral in modern British history, fills a genuine gap in our knowledge. This is a must for Nelson aficionados and anyone who shares our national love of pageantry and commemoration.
