In the wake of a humbling incident aboard a canal boat in the Cotswolds, young Captain Horatio Hornblower arrives in London to take command of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop barely large enough to require a captain. Her first assignment under Hornblower's command is as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. But soon the Atropos is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasure that lies deep in Turkish waters and boldly challenging a Spanish frigate several times her size. At the center of each adventure is Hornblower, Forrester's most inspired creation, whose blend of cautious preparation and spirited executive dazzles friend and foe alike.

    " This one was not as good as "Mr. Midshipman Hornblower" or "Lieutenant Hornblower" but better than "Hornblower during the Crisis" and only slightly less than on par with "Hornblower and the Hotspur." "

    " I would like to give this a 4.5. It is my favorite of the series so far. It is a very entertaining story. But the best part of the book is the character development of Horatio Hornblower. Great writing. "

    " I read all the Patrick O'Brien books, so it's about time I went and checked out the original Napoleonic era "Master & Commander" novels, C.S. Forester's saga of Horatio Hornblower. Sorta started in the middle with this one, and I did like it. Pretty exciting, interesting situations (politics and predicaments), lots of that Napoleonic naval atmosphere, Rule Britannia and all that. I'll probably read the rest of them... Kinda wish I would have read these BEFORE the O'Briens though, since the O'Brien's seem like more "advanced" Foresters, more nautical detail, more literary depth, etc. "
