Kent has an identity acquired much earlier than most English counties, helped by the natural unity conferred by its peninsular configuration. In some ways it has managed to retain them, in spite of its nearness to the capital, and in spite of its having been the highway to and from the Continent; in prehistoric days migrants could walk from Cap Gris Nez to the South Foreland. Though the Romans withdrew from Britain in 54 B.C. they returned in A.D. 43, followed by the Saxons and Normans. Now the Channel Tunnel has again made Kent a super-highway between Europe. 165 color and b/w illustrations.

Horatio Nelson is considered by some to be one of the most inspiring and perplexing characters in history. In this biography of Horatio Nelson, Ernle Bradford discusses Nelson's own battles, but also looks at naval warfare of the period in general. The author describes the strategies, the tactics, the ponderous ship-to-ship bombardments, the terrifying injuries, as well as Nelson's policy of annihilation of the opposing fleet, making the point that Nelson regarded the escape of a single enemy ship as a failure.
