Lieutenant Hornblower was first published in England in 1952 and released in the United States first as a magazine serial and then as a novel. This is the seventh of eleven riveting novels Forester wrote that trace the career of Horatio Hornblower from his rocky start as a Midshipman in the British Navy during the Napoleonic wars through his many adventures to eventually become Admiral of the Fleet. If you enjoy Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey and Maturin series, you will find the adventures of Hornblower every bit as thrilling and even more accessible. C.S. Forester was an author most famous for his Hornblower and other seafaring novels, but also wrote crime novels and short stories set in World War II in addition to his most recognized work, The African Queen, which was made into a movie starring Humphrey Bogart in 1951.
