Written by the leading Danish authority on the period, this splendid work brings to life Nelson's historic victory immortalised by his so famously turning a blind eye to his superior's order to halt operations. As well as describing the brilliance of the British tactics, the work fascinatingly reveals the desperate action and great bravery displayed by the Danish defenders who suffered appallingly in the fighting.

This book contains all that the reader of British accounts of the battle would expect but adds a great deal more about the political and military position of the Danes than most such readers may have previously understood. Without diminishing the British military achievement in any way, the extraordinary valour of the Danes is ensured its' proper place in history.
The content is presented in an objective and scholarly style but makes easy reading and this book would grace the bookshelves of any student of the Revolutionary War, not simply those with a maritime bias.
