... thanks for the info, Peter. I still have Volume 1 to read. Does the author turn up new stuff on Nelson?

I logged on to Amazon to order Sugden Vol 2 - but it us 'currently unavailable'.

Has the release date been postponed again?

Amazon UK have been saying for some time (and currently) that the release date is/was 3rd April. I duly ordered it but it has not yet been shipped.

What a disappointment - but also there is the pleasure of anticipation!

Mil - 'does he turn up new stuff on Nelson'? Yes indeed: much on his service in the West Indies, for example. But also Sugden weaves fascinating digressions into the Georgian Navy without ever losing the narrative thrust of Nelson's story. It is a monumental achievement, eclipsing, I think, even Roger Knight's most admirable and scholarly work.

I saw on a website that this work will be in three volumes, but don't know how authoritative that is.

Yes, it will be interesting to see John Sugden's second volume but a quick look at Jonathan Cape's (publisher of Vol 1) website does not mention Vol 2.

If it is to be three vols the work will be of a different character from Roger Knight's magisterial work.

With best wishes,
David

John Sugden is still working on Volume 2 of his Nelson Biography, so we will have to curb our impatience. If it is as magnificent as the first, it will be worth waiting for!

A fellow enthusiast has contacted John Sugden's publishers. They say the publication date has been re-scheduled: it's now 2010.

I wonder if that means that it will be only a two volume work?
