9781590130650: The Life and Times of Horatio Hornblower: A Biography of C. S. Forester's Famous Naval Hero

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.

About the Author:

Cyril Northcote Parkinson pursued a distinguished academic career on both sides of the Atlantic and first became famous for "Parkinson's Law"—work expands to fill the time allotted to it. Parkinson wrote many books on British politics and economics. His first fictional effort, a "biography" of Horatio Hornblower, met with considerable acclaim and led to the Delancey series. C. Northcote Parkinson died in 1993.

Review:

"There is enough here to delight even the most enthusiastic of Hornblower's fans."  —The Los Angeles Times

"Authentic naval adventure . . . full of action."  —Sunday Times
