The Terror before Trafalgar – Nelson Napoleon and the secret war

£8.05

Nelsons victory at Trafalgar on 21 October 1805 was a pivotal event in European history. But Trafalgar was not simply an isolated battle fought and won in an afternoon – the naval campaign had in fact begun more than four years before. This extraordinary period, following Napoleon s threat to invade England in 1801, came to be known as The Great Terror, and Britain was on the alert. As the Grande Armee faced a Dad s army of English volunteers across the Channel, a secret war of espionage and subversion was fought in the shadows
