A timelesss tale of a midshipman's rise in Nelson's navy.

Widely regarded as Marryat's best work, Mr. Midshipman Easy is based on the author's adventures sailing with Lord Thomas Cochrane. This classic seafaring tale is a fascinating account of naval life and warfare, of French prisons and love affairs, and of the midshipman's berth. Marryat's ready wit, unforgettable characters, and true-to-life details have earned him praise from Conrad, Hemingway, and Ford Madox Ford, who called him "the greatest of English novelists."

From the Publisher:

Rousing good sea adventure by a master of nautical literature. A 19th-century British Royal Navy captain, Frederick Marryat offers contemporary readers plenty of cannonfire, battle strategy, peril and passion-liberally sprinkled with wit and fine turns of phrase. A sure-fire hit for Patrick O'Brian fans!

From the Back Cover:

A rollicking sea adventure, set in the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Mr. Midshipman Easy follows the escapades of a young midshipman who enters the King's service with some ideas that run badly afoul of the standards of naval discipline! The author was an actual 19th-century British naval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester or Patrick O'Brian. Captain Frederick Marryat survived fifty naval battles and served on the crack frigate Imperieuse under Lord Cochrane - the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey. Mr. Midshipman Easy is said to have been inspired by Cochrane's adventures as a young midshipman.
