Volume 8 of the Hornblower Saga (Nov 1810 - Fall 1811) This is the third book written about Hornblower, and also available in our three book omnibus "Captain Horatio Hornblower."
Forced to surrender his ship after a long and bloody battle, Captain Horatio Hornblower now bides his time as a prisoner awaiting transport to Paris and a trial on trumped up charges. After escaping with his first lieutenant Bush, and his coxswain Brown, they find refuge in France. Later, the three again make their way down the Loire river and upon reaching the sea find a means to escape to England where Hornblower's life becomes more than he ever expected.
