Trafalgar Dispatches

Trafalgar Dispatches

(2012)
A novel by

 
What was it like to fight at Trafalgar? How would the modern media report the greatest sea battle of the Georgian era which still resonates today? A victory against all odds which secured the pre-eminence of the Royal Navy and heralded Pax Britannica, Britain's dominance of the seas for a hundred years; a victory which etched the name of a fallen hero, Admiral Horatio Nelson deep into the nation's psyche.

Naval combat correspondent John Pretty was embedded with the Fleet, witnessed the action first hand, interviewed Admirals and sailors alike for a unique insight into the strategy of war at sea in the age of sail. These are his eye-witness reports. This is the story of Trafalgar.

With meticulous historical accuracy Roger Busby recreates the build up, the battle and it's aftermath as if it happened today when correspondents are routinely embedded aboard Royal Navy warships and conflicts are played out on television screens across the nation. A Lieutenant Commander RNR attached for twelve years to the headquarters of the Sea Cadet Corp, junior image of the Senior Service and custodian of the Trafalgar legend, he is uniquely placed to give the epic tale of war at sea a modern setting as a journalist and correspondent for the monthly naval magazine Warships International Fleet Review. With the pace of a thriller, Trafalgar-Dispatches brings the timeless story of an epic sea battle right up to date for an internet generation.
