BookPick: Lord Nelson’s Swords
[To leave a comment or reply go to box at the end of the page]
Regular readers of my blog may recall an earlier post mentioning that Sim Comfort would be bringing out a book on Nelson’s swords. I’ve just heard from Sim that the book will be released mid-March. He’s set up to take pre-orders now.
As well as being a stunning compilation of photographs and details of many of the Royal Navy’s most important historic swords this book throws out a challenge: where is Nelson’s fighting sword today?
‘Something which has intrigued those who study naval edged weapons are the questions: what did Admiral Lord Nelson use as a fighting sword and where is it today? This new work identifies the sword and what it looked like, but where it is remains a mystery which hopefully a reader of this book will solve by finding it. The sword must be out there somewhere!’
