The second act of the Hornblower saga is a gripping, rip-roaring tale of turmoil and triumph on the high seas. With new responsibilities thrust upon him, a young Lieutenant Hornblower is now fully in command of a ship for the first time. Faced with the challenges of near-mutiny, bloody hand-to-hand combat, deck-splintering sea battles, and the violence and horrors of life aboard the fighting ships in Napoleonic Wars, Hornblower must find a way to endure and overcome, as only a hero of his stature can.
"This is quite a story, one of the best in the apparently limitless Hornblower series, and a pleasure...from beginning to end." (The New York Times)
"I recommend Forester to every literate I know." (Ernest Hemingway)
