Drawing on diaries, letters, and newspapers, Tom Pocock offers a wonderful picture of the years 1801-1805, and of the people wittingly or unwittingly caught up in these unique events: Nelson himself as he blockaded the French at sea for two unbroken years; his love Emma Hamilton waiting at home; Jane Austen and her naval brothers; the diarist Fanny Burney; the admirals, generals, and politicians; and those lesser-known men - Congreve, Moreau, and Pichegru -- who waged the secret war, in England and in France.
