"'One can say with confidence that this monumental tome is the finest yet written on England's great naval hero.... Sugden's brilliant book is chock-full of fascinating details. And if the second volume turns out as well as this, his life of Nelson will be one of the historical masterpieces of our time.' Frank McLynn, Daily Express 'Nelson's early life has been neglected by biographers, but Sugden has patiently reconstructed the early years... Sugden's account of Nelson's battles is richly absorbing, and his fluent, buoyant prose scuds along, carrying the reader with it. This must surely become a standard life.' Jane Ridley, Spectator 'Sugden's epic work is a masterpiece of the biographer's art... Sugden has written a book that will be the yardstick by which all other Nelson biographies will be judged for decades to come. The flagship of the fleet, it leaves all others trailing in its wake.' Neil Hanson, Sunday Times"
