I have just finished reading a book called The Royal Navy 1793-1815. It's published by Osprey in thier battle orders series and gives a great insight into the Royal Navy and how it was administered and manned during the time of Nelson up to the end of the war of 1812. I got my copy from Waterstones.

A very good read is 'The Trafalgar Companion' by mark Adkin published by Aurum/
Its one heck of a sized book which is reflected in its cost, and gives a blow-by-blow account of the most famous Sea battle and the life of Lord Nelson, it also includes info on all ships present and lots of info not seen elsewhere.

Hi Mr.T.
another great book is "trafalger the biography of a battle" by Roy Adkins. it is a novel that gives snapshots of the conflict, tension before battle along with diagrams and maps, an account of the aftermath and humanity of the men.
