About the Author

C. S. Forester (1899-1966) wrote many highly acclaimed novels, including the eleven-volume Hornblower saga and The African Queen.

Reviews

MacNee (The Avengers and A View to a Kill) is a superb choice to read this ripping yarn-the third in Forester's expert and exciting series about a young naval officer who rises rapidly through the ranks to become one of England's heroes in the battles against Napoleon's huge fleet of fast and formidably armed frigates. MacNee is perfect as the young Horatio Hornblower, who listeners meet on his wedding day in 1803. The couple's romance succumbs to history as the dastardly French prepare to attack. With the possible exception of Patrick O'Brian, nobody else writes about sea battles with the perfect control of Forester, and MacNee uses all his acting skills to keep the action moving. A few sound effects might have been in order during the fighting scenes, but one can't have everything. A Back Bay paperback. (Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"No other contemporary writer can equal Forester at this kind of storytelling."--Chicago Tribune
"With meticulous attention to nautical detail, which no committee of old sea dogs has been able to fault, C. S. Forester has shown himself to be a master of the genre."--New York Times Book Review
