      Dear heavens, an Admiral speaking against close combat? You shall be
      doomed to be the most indebted admiral in the Navy, sir, I am certain.
      It is most difficult to accumulate prize-money without our boarding
      and taking ships, which admittedly tends to be very messy business.

      And true glory is only found by those naval officers who seek out the
      most harrowing of close combat with the enemy. How else would one rise
      to the level of a Nelson? (Though, admittedly, his glory might have
      been a tad greater, especially for him, had he avoided that frog
      marksman...)

              Collingwood that won the Battle of Trafalgar. How did these myths get
              started? I believe Nelson ended up on the orlop deck, hardly a great rise

                How does Nelson figure into Hand to Hand ?!?

                  might have given some thought to the value they would be to their nation and
                  the men they led if they had made arrangements to have an even chance of
                  surviving instead of croaking with glory. Brock leading the lads up the
                  slope at Queenston and Nelson standing about on the open deck of VICTORY
                  with all his orders and decorations on come to mind as brave actions, but
                  not entirely responsible ones. Canada needed Brock alive, not a heroic
                  corpse shovelled into the ramparts of Fort George. And the Brits (not to
                  mention Emma Hamilton) could have found a few more uses for Horatio...
