Publisher's Summary

1805, and Hornblower is both humbled and honoured in quick succession....
After near disaster on board a canal barge, Horatio Hornblower is given his first assignment as captain, taking charge of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop that will act as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon the Atropos is part of the Mediterranean fleet’s assault upon Napoleon, and Captain Hornblower must execute a bold and daring salvage operation for buried treasure lying deep in Turkish waters.
Under the guns of a suspicious port captain and the threat of a Spanish frigate more than double Atropos’s size, Hornblower must steer his ship unscathed and triumphant....
Christian Rodska reads C. S. Forester’s thrilling seafaring adventure.

The First Command

Hornblower and his own command continues to grow in character. Not as fast paced as some of the other books but with some unusual story lines. This book is a little slow and drawn out in the early section but pays good attention to the traditions and protocols of the RN. The story does pick up as Hornblower is sent into service and builds to a climax expected of a Hornblower story.
