Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With interest in nautical adventure stories reaching unprecedented heights — as evidenced by the success of The Perfect Storm, Patrick O'Brian's bestselling Aubrey/Maturin novels, the Titanic phenomenon, etc. — now is the ideal time for readers to rediscover the pleasures and excitement of C. S. Forester's epic saga of turmoil and triumph on the high seas.<P>The Horatio Hornblower novels, which recount the thrilling adventures of one of the most daring and resourceful officers in the Royal Navy as he wrestles with his own "accursed unhappy temperament" and as he sails valiantly into battle after battle against Napoleon's forces, have riveted and delighted millions of readers since the series was initiated in 1938.<P>Little, Brown's relaunch of the Hornblower series commenced in June 1998 with the publication of a new low-priced hardcover edition of Mr. Midshipman Hornblower, the first Hornblower novel. Now it continues as the second and third novels in the series are reissued in trade paperback — and as the A&E cable network premieres its magnificent new four-part television series based on Hornblower's adventures.

Synopsis:

In this gripping tale of turmoil and triumph on the high seas, Horatio Hornblower emerges from his apprenticeship as midshipman to face new responsibilities thrust upon him by the fortunes of war between Napoleon and Spain. Enduring near-mutiny, bloody hand-to-hand combat with Spanish seamen, deck-splintering sea battles, and the violence and horror of life on the fighting ships of the Napoleonic Wars, the young lieutenant distinguishes himself in his first independent command. He also faces an adventure unique in his experience: Maria.

Synopsis:

When the Renown's cruel captain goes insane and First Lieutenant Buckland has to assume command, the ship's officers are all put to the test. None comes through the ordeal better than the youngest, Horatio Hornblower.
