In a world where heroism and self-sacrifice sometimes seem to be in short supply, the exploits of the famed Admiral Horatio Nelson stand out to us as a refreshing reminder. His noble actions serve to show us of what it means to go above and beyond the call of duty and to put petty differences aside for the greater good. But of course, this is only part of the story. Because despite the larger-than-life legend that two centuries have brought us, Horatio Nelson was not some swashbuckling caricature, he was a real flesh and blood human being, just as flawed as the rest of us.

Inside you will read about…

â?? Fighting American Revolutionaries and Malaria
â?? Nelson the Enforcer
â?? Nelson Takes on the Spanish
â?? The One-Eyed and One-Armed Admiral
â?? The Hero and His Mistress
And much more!

The same man who saved Britain, couldn’t save his marriage. The man who was faithful to God and Country beyond anything else had several mistresses and fathered a child out of wedlock. The truth is even heroes aren’t perfect. This book gets beyond the two-dimensional figure we learned about in grade school and delves deep into the true character of Horatio Nelson.



Andrew Jackson: A Captivating Guide to the Man Who Served as the Seventh President of the United States

Explore the Captivating Life of Andrew Jackson

Free History BONUS Inside!

When Jackson left the White House after two presidential terms, he had achieved a rare feat: he left office with even more popularity than when he first entered it. His reputation as a strong president and a “champion of working-class democracy” has nevertheless been viewed through a more nuanced lens in recent years.

In 2016, President Barack Obama decided to replace Andrew Jackson’s visage on the front of the $20 bill with a portrait of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Meanwhile, current President Donald Trump has repeatedly drawn parallels between himself and Jackson via his infamous Twitter account and public speeches. He even put a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office and visited his tomb in Nashville shortly after being sworn in.

The present day is thus an apt time for a look into Jackson’s divisive life and legacy and that is what this captivating book offers.
