About this Item

Book club edition. Lacks jacket. Front hinge weak, ink name and bookplate on front endpapers. 1953 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author. 672 pp. Includes: Mr. Midshipman Hornblower; Lieutenant Hornblower; Hornblower and the Atropos. Horatio Hornblower is the fictional protagonist of a series of novels by C. S. Forester, and later the subject of films and television programs. The original Hornblower tales began with the appearance of a junior Royal Navy Captain on independent duty on a secret mission to Central America, though later stories would fill out his earlier years, starting with an unpromising beginning as a seasick midshipman. As the Napoleonic Wars progress, he gains promotion steadily, despite his initial poverty and lack of influential friends, as a result of his skill and daring. Eventually, after surviving many adventures in a wide variety of locales, he rises to the pinnacle of his profession, promoted to Rear Admiral of the Red Squadron, knighted as a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath, and named the 1st Baron Hornblower. Ernest Hemingway is quoted as saying, I recommend Forester to everyone literate I know, and Winston Churchill stated, I find Hornblower admirable. Bookseller Inventory # 1522816
