While Horatio Nelson was celebrated for his heroism in the Battle of Trafalgar, the man who saw the victory through, Vice-Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood, received little fanfare and sought none. Written two centuries later, Northumberland historian Andrew Griffin's biography of the man uses accounts of Collingwood's life to demonstrate his importance to British history, bringing to light the national impact of a local hero. Gordon Griffin avoids melodrama as he reads the battle stories, letting his voice bring alive the historical period and the people who lived in it. He creates a portrait of Collingwood as a loyal friend to Nelson and an able commander of men. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
