Promoted to junior lieutenant, Hornblower sails
to the West Indies to capture a Spanish garrison. Mutineers
and an insane captain must be dealt with before the
Renown can face the dreaded heated shot from the
Spanish fortress. An exciting adventure, with Spanish
treachery, primitive and murderous Black islanders, and
deck-splintering sea battles.
The Hornblower books are
highly recommended by your web master and web editor! They
are informative, fun, and superbly crafted.
enjoy the descriptions of ships, sails, and navigation in
Forester's books. Woman will like the vivid characters and
the superb story lines. Teens will like the action and the
fact that the shy, not physically strong hero usually does
well, although both effort and intelligence are required.
These are good, wholesome novels: not at all
multicultural. The author's description of the non-Whites
the ship's crews encounter in their voyages around the
world is accurate and definitely not PC.
