Publisher's Summary

The newly promoted Commodore returns to the scene of his first naval action - the Baltic. In a gripping adventure in the northern waters, Hornblower must use all his skill and experience to prevent a catastrophic war.


What the Critics Say

"Christian Rodska recounts this naval war adventure with the gusto of Commodore Hornblower as he travels the seas. Hornblower assumes command of a ship undertaking voyages rivaling those of Napoleon and his army of adversaries. We hear the compassion, wit, and intelligence with which Hornblower commands his ship. The politics of the times, the responsibilities of leadership, and the trials of serving at sea in a century gone by are captured in this narrative depiction of British naval life." (AudioFile)

The last chapter is NOT missing!

Any additional comments?

Don't believe the other reviewers who talk about the last chapter being missing. I bought this audiobook in March 2015 and all the chapters are present. The last words in both the audiobook and the printed edition is at the end of chapter XXIII: "What the devil was Brown doing, staring at him like this?" Perhaps the last chapter was missing in a previous edition of this audiobook. If so, the problem has since been corrected. I almost didn't buy the book based on their comments.
