Hornblower Saga; Vol 4; Apr 1805 - Fall 1805
Although unfinished, Hornblower During the Crisis introduces us to the makings of Horatio Hornblower as a spy. Our hero fights a ship battle and obtains a very special French secret document, orders from Napoleon to the French fleet. Hornblower presents a daring plan to draw the French into a decisive engagement with the British fleet.
The unfinished book stops at the point where Hornblower is persuaded to attempt the mission himself. This edition includes the completed portion of the manuscript along with Forester's notes, which offer guidance as to how he planned to conclude the tale.
