Synopsis

Enter a fearsome battle across the seas with the latest instalment in the hit children’s history series

The world is at war, and oceans have become battlefields. Napoleon Bonaparte, tyrant of France, has crushed one country after another. Now his cruel eyes are fixed on Britain.

Only one man can stop him – Horatio Nelson.

Young Horatio Nelson went to sea when he was just twelve, but he has never shown a trace of fear. His friends are amazed that somebody so small and slight can be so brave. But now he faces the greatest test of all.
From the snows of the North to the shores of Egypt, Nelson must lead the fightback against the French war machine. But as Britain’s survival hangs by a thread, what price will he pay to save his country?

The Adventures in Time series brings the past alive for twenty-first century children. These stories are every bit as exciting as those of Harry Potter or Matilda Wormwood. The only difference is they actually happened...
