Nelson - I am Myself a Norfolk Man
Nelson - I am myself a Norfolk man was a special publication for the year which marked the bicentenary of Nelson's greatest victory at Trafalgar and his death in the battle. It is now the ideal publication for both the explorer of Norfolk who woud like to visit the many places associated with the national hero, and all those with a general interest in his life and times.
Author Charles Lewis concentrates specifically on his Norfolk life - as a child in Burnham, as a schoolboy in Norwich and North Walsham, his years as a captain waiting for a ship, and his time in Great Yarmouth - returning from the battle of the Nile and embarking for the battle of Copenhagen. In addition to the many links with the life of Nelson, you'll find a wide range of connections in the county which you can still visit - from the Horatia memorial at Trunch to the Invincible grave at Happisburgh. With 92 pictures, 50 of them in colour, this is a valuable addition to the range of Nelson titles.
