The final Horatio Hornblower story tells of Napoleon's plans to invade England.

Set in 1805, Hornblower and the Crisis finds Horatio Hornblower in possession of confidential dispatches from Bonaparte after a vicious hand-to-hand encounter with a French brig. The admiralty rewards Hornblower by sending him on a dangerous espionage mission that will light the powder trail leading to the battle of Trafalgar.

Hornblower and the Crisis was unfinished at the time of Forester's death, but the author left notes telling us how the tale would end.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Roger | 2/3/2014

    " Unfinished book by the late CS Forester ... a nice addition to the Hornblower series filling the time between him leaving the Hotspur and becoming a 'real' (post) Captain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Zuzana | 1/23/2014

    " First nine chapters of the novel Forester didn't have time to finish and three shortstories: "Hornblower and widow McCool", "Hornblower's charitable offering" and "The Last Encounter". 2.5 stars "

    " How sad to read an uncompleted novel. We miss you, Forester. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Peter Krol | 1/1/2014

    " The worst part about this book was that Forester died before he finished it. I never thought I'd enjoy an unfinished story. But the pages flew by, and the story was well told. I can't wait to read the next volume in the Hornblower series. "
