"I have what I thought was everything C.S. Forester had written on Hornblower, then I saw this and knew I had to get it. Since it is a series of short stories it is a fast read. In my opinion it helps to fill in gaps in the Hornblower saga and I really enjoyed it and recommed it to anyone that has follwed Hornblower. "
"Anyone who likes stories set in the age of "wooden ships and iron men" will want this offering."

Five adventures of Horatio Hornblower, two as Lieutenant, two as Captain, and one as Admiral of the Fleet, collected here for the first time. These stories about daring exploits, compassion, and challenging discoveries were written outside the confines of books and were published by magazines.
The author has given free reign to his character - creating unique circumstances to further the development of Hornblower's character. A potential mutiny thwarted, an Irish uprising out foxed, help to hundreds, managing a healthy sea voyage for an ailing monarch, and meeting once again Napoleon Bonaparte -- very different insights into this complex man Hornblower.
