256pp., 30 illus. 2018. The first Battle of Copenhagen in 1801-the naval battle celebrated as one of Nelson’s great victories-and the second-the British army’s assault on the city in 1807 were episodes in the continental struggle to resist the power of the French. Gareth Glover describes these events in vivid detail, quoting extensively from the recollections of eyewitnesses on both sides.
