Beatty's account is impersonal and his brief narrative style tells a lot more than you would think; this is an ideal piece of reportage. I doubt if there is anyone in this country who doesn't know who Nelson was and the legend that has built up around him since his death. To read this then is to get to the grassroots of what happened. With his being shot, covering up his face and insignia so that the seamen didn't know who was being taken to see the surgeon, at heart Nelson was a man the likes of which will never be seen again. A man who died how he wished, in battle, but with victory in his grasp, also a man who worried on his deathbed that Emma Hamilton and his adopted daughter would be seen to and looked after.
