5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping sea warfare stuff of Napoleonic proportions, 6 Dec 2001
This review is from: The Young Hornblower Omnibus: "Mr.Midshipman Hornblower", "Lieutenant Hornblower", "Hornblower and the "Hotspur"" (Paperback)
Worth reading every 10 years or so to remind us what a truly entertaining author CSF was. As good a command of the english language as Conrad, CSF takes us through a man's glorious naval career, occasionally tinged with tragedy but never dull. The ideal introduction to an examination of the Napoleonic era which has spawned so many good books by inspired authors...
