This sixth novel in C. S. Forester's eleven-volume chronicle of the naval adventures of Horatio Hornblower is a high point in the series, featuring two spectacular sea battles.

June 1808 finds 37 year old Captain Hornblower and his 36-gun HMS Lydia somewhere west of Nicaragua. The Admiralty has commanded him to form an alliance against the Spanish colonial government with an insane Spanish landowner; to find a water route across the Central American isthmus; and to take, sink, burn or destroy the 50-gun Spanish ship of the line Natividad or face court-martial.

A daunting enough set of orders - even if happily married Hornblower were not woefully distracted by the passenger he is obliged to take on in Panama: Lady Barbara Wellesley.
