This book was hard to put down. This writing by the author and interest holding power is much improved over Captain Hornblower.


The Best of Hornblower

by Jimnew on Apr 30, 2007

All of C.S. Forester's books in the Hornblower series are classics. They combine a real knowledge of the british navy under sail with great action. To me, the best of these books is Commodore Hornblower. The action takes place in the Baltic, which alone sets it apart from the other books of the series, which usually take place in a much warmer location. The background is the invasion of Russia by Napoleon. The book touches on the diplomatic crisis that would decide the fate of nations, while serving up all the battles a lover of books on historic naval and land warfare could want.
