Nelson, in spite of advice, insisted upon wearing his full uniform into battle, and at the height of the encounter he was badly wounded by a musket shot from the fighting top of the French ship Redoubtable, which his flagship Victory had fouled. He died 3 hours later as the victory, one of the most significant in history, was completed. Twenty enemy ships were captured, and one was blown up.

The English lost no ships. This decisive English victory ended Napoleon's power on the sea. Nelson's body was placed in a cask of brandy and carried home for burial in St. Paul's Cathedral, London. No one, perhaps, better symbolized the British hero than Nelson—dashing naval commander, viscount, and lover.
More than this, Nelson ranks high as a leader of men not only for the bravery and dash he displayed at Cape Saint Vincent, but also for his coolness under fire, his joy in battle, and the humanity he displayed at Copenhagen. Nelson was a beloved leader because he knew his officers and men. His captains knew what he wanted to do and how he thought it should be done. The whole combination was called the Nelson touch. The best accounts of Nelson are by English naval historian Oliver Warner, A Portrait of Lord Nelson ; American title, Victory and Nelson's Battles , which updates the previous work and includes many portraits and illustrations of the battles.
A worthwhile book is Sir William M. James, The Durable Monument An excellent account of the Battle of Trafalgar is by a distinguished chronicler of the Napoleonic Wars, David Howarth, Trafalgar: The Nelson Touch , which makes good use of the most recent studies by naval historians and is interspersed with first-rate illustrations.
