Many know of Horatio Hornblower's exploits during the Napoleonic Wars through the novels of C.S. Forester, but how many know the true Hornblower- the man who rose from Midshipman to Admiral of the British Fleet? Using Hornblower family papers discovered in the 1970s, C. Northcote Parkinson has set the record straight in this authoritative biography. Masterful research and meticulous authenticity bring Hornblower and his turbulent times to life. Parkinson has left no stone unturned in his quest to shed light in even the darkest corner, including the suspicious death of Captain Sawyer of the Renown. The truth, told by Hornblower himself in a letter to his solicitor, lays the controversy to rest once and for all. This classic biography of the popular fictional hero is as entertaining as the Forester novels themselves.
