This is the seventh book in the series that I have read.
Whenever Hornblower manages detached duty he is at his best, terrorizing the French, and their army(!), on the Catalan coast, where the sea crashes into the Pyrenees.
C.S. Forester started a genre with Horatio Hornblower, and this book is packed with action and adventure.
Haven't seen it yet Been so long I've forgotten when I ordered it.
But I've read the novel before and it's GREAT!
An excellent fictional account of the British navy. Also an excellent A&E mini-series.Published 4 months ago by B. W. Hirn
A good book written in typical Forester style. Lots of naval battles, armed conflict, storms, intrigue etc. Perhaps a little TOO fast moving to be realistic. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Rory Hope

If you've ever read a Horatio Hornblower book, you know how gripping and realistic the a narrative and action is. Although the dialogue could be stilted, it is not high brow. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mollynash
