Best known for his victory in the Battle of Trafalgar (1805), where he also lost his life, Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson is England's perhaps most famous admiral. A superb strategist, but also tactician, Nelson fought many battles and won several decisive victories. Always in the line of fire alongside his men, Nelson lost an arm and one eye and was wounded numerous times. His legacy remains very much alive and influential.
