This is the first in a series of wonderful books by C. S. Forester which follows Horatio Hornblower through his naval career. In 1793, the eve of the Napoleonic Wars, Hornblower was 17, unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen. He is ordered to board a French merchant ship and take command of crew and cargo for the glory of England. Though not an unqualified success, this first naval adventure teaches the young midshipman enough to launch him on a series of increasingly glorious exploits. This novel - in which young Horatio gets his sea legs, proves his mettle, and shows the makings of the legend he will become - is the first of 11 swashbuckling Hornblower tales that are today regarded as classic adventure stories of the sea.
