Written by the leading Danish authority on the period, this splendid work brings to life Nelson's historic victory immortalized by his so famously turning a blind eye to his superiors 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. Professor Feldbaek's account has been highly successful in Danish and its publication in English is eagerly awaited.
