"C.S. Forester never fails to tell an exciting tale and Lord Hornblower, the 9th novel in the series, is one of the best."

We now find Captain Horatio Hornblower elevated to the peerage in this volume 10 of the Hornblower Saga. He must save a tyrannical officer from his mutinied crew, advance the Bourbon cause in Le Harve as the city changes it allegiance away from Napoleon, and wage a guerilla fight with his old love Marie at his side. Only to find himself captured and condemned to death.
These thrilling tales of high-seas adventure in the Napoleonic era, which Winston Churchill found "vastly entertaining" and Ernest Hemingway recommended to "every literate I know", are being eagerly embraced by a new generation of readers.
