Seize, Burn or Sink: The Thoughts and Words of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson"Seize, Burn, or Sink: The Thoughts and Words of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson" contains more than 3,000 quotations from Horatio Nelson, the most famous leader in British naval history. Taken from both official and personal letters, these quotes bring insight to the thoughts and character of the greatest fighting admiral who ever lived. Steven E. Maffeo has carefully narrowed down more than 4,000 letters and documents of Nelson's writings to highlight his commentary. Organized chronologically by topic, Nelson's "cheerful, urgent, but often wayward and usually unpunctuated stream of consciousness" tackles everthing from death and desertion to leadership and loyalty. A detailed index is also included for readers wishing to know Nelson's opinion on any specific individual, event, or place.
