Hornblower Saga: Vol 11; May 1821 - Oct 1823
Horatio Hornblower, now an Admiral, sails over seas as challenging as any in his victorious career. As admiral in charge of His Britannic Majesty's West Indies Station he is as gallant, daring, implosive as ever. In this tense time after Napoleon's defeat, all problems come sailing into the waters where Hornblower is working his small contingent of naval vessels. Hornblower wins his victories even as his professional life as a British naval officer reaches its climax, not in a battle against men, but against nature.
