Volume 2 of the Hornblower Saga (Spring 1800 - Mar 1803)
A tyrannical Captain falls, or is helped, through a hatch. With the Captain incapacitated, Hornblower directs a shore invasions, captures enemy ships, and recovers escaped Spanish crews. Cleared at a court martial, Hornblower is commended for his successes and sent home to England with dispatches as the Commander of one of the prizes he was responsible for capturing. Seen through Lieutenant Bush's eyes, we enjoy discovering more about these two characters and their very different personalities.
