Ladybird Tuesday - Nelson

Ladybird Tuesday - Nelson

I was really pleased to pick this Ladybird book up a few weeks ago, coming as it did straight after our visit to Portsmouth to visit the Victory, Nelson's flagship. The Story of Nelson is number 4 in the Ladybird History Series 561, which includes many other notable historic figures such as Florence Nightingale, Joan of Arc, Charles Dickens as well as plenty of Kings and Queens. It was published in 1957.

This book goes into a lot of detail. I learned a little bit about Nelson at school, including taking part in a musical performance of Hip Hip Horatio (with thanks to the Mumsnet forums for helping me track that one down!) but this book contains a huge amount about Nelson, and how he rose up through the ranks.
