5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and authentic, 22 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hornblower - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Thoroughly enjoyed this series. Having read Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey/Marurin historical novels, I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this. O'Brien's attention to historical detail makes his novels (in my humble opinion) the best window into naval life at the turn of the 19th century. Still, this series is excellent, and superb value for money. Just a shame there aren't more!

I. Buchan says:
Actually C.S.Forresters Novels on Hornblower were the first all others are in fact based on Hornblower the character was based on the Real Life Unsung British Hero Admiral The Lord Cochrane as was Patrick O'Briens and the Master Commander Film. If you wish to reaf real life action you will find it in the many non-fiction books written about Cochrane
