"The Battle of the Nile ranks as the first major independent victory of Nelson’s career. The British fleet had crippled the French campaign in North Africa by denying Napoleon’s army access to seaborne supplies and support. Besides asserting naval supremacy in the Mediterranean, the British victory encouraged other European countries to turn against France ... This 96-page book covers the opposing commanders and the forces at their disposal, their battle plans, and the broad sweep of history behind the fateful Battle of the Nile. New maps and specially commissioned artwork by Howard Gerrard help illuminate this highly recommended book about one of history’s key sea battles." -Toy Soldier & Model Figure (July 2011)
