C. S. Forester was born in Cairo in 1899, where his father was stationed as a government official. He studied medicine at Guy's Hospital, and after leaving Guy's without a degree he turned to writing as a career. On the outbreak of war he entered the Ministry of Information and later he sailed with the Royal Navy to collect material for The Ship. He made a voyage to the Bering Sea to gather material for a similar book on the United States Navy, and it was during this trip that he was stricken with arteriosclerosis, a disease which left him crippled. However, he continued to write and in the Hornblower novels created the most renowned sailor in contemporary fiction. He died in 1966.From AudioFile:
As this novel of the final days of the Napoleonic War begins, Horatio Hornblower has been ordered to quell a mutiny that he is afraid may have been justified. The story continues as he wins a major naval victory, a peerage, and the death penalty at a French prison camp. Christian Rodska conveys the drama of these events with his compelling and engaging reading. Rodska is a familiar name in the audiobook field due to his precise, expressive voice and his talent with character and accents, all demonstrated on this program. One of Forester's best is given a moving performance by a Golden Voice. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
