About the Author

C. S. Forester was born in Cairo in 1899, where his father was stationed as a government official. He studied medicine at Guy's Hospital and, after leaving Guy's without a degree, he turned to writing as a career.His first success was Payment Deferred, a novel written at the age of twenty-four and later dramatized and filmed with Charles Laughton in the leading role. In 1932 Forester was offered a Hollywood contract, and from then until 1939 he spent thirteen weeks of every year in America.On the outbreak of war he entered the Ministry of Information and later he sailed with the Royal Navy to collect the material for The Ship. He made a voyage to the Bering Sea to gather material for a similar book on the United States Navy, and it was during this trip that he was stricken with arteriosclerosis, a disease which left him crippled. However, he continued to write and in the Hornblower novels created the most renowned sailor in contemporary fiction. He died in 1966.

Three of the most wonderful books ever + one that (in my opinion) didn't really need to have bee written... Oh well.

Highly recommend the omnibus edition because you get Flying Colours, The Commodore and Lord Hornblower (oh and Hornblower in the West Indies) in the same place. The three books are so fantastic that you'll fly through them in no time, and then you'll have the convenience of having the next book already in hand! :) I own the series as a set of 3 omnibuses and I'm glad I do - it saves carrying all the single books around, because with Hornblower, once you pop, you can't stop!
