Wyeth illustrated dust jacket now encased in Mylar sleeve with light chipping to head and tail of spine, and light rubbing to bottom edge. First published in England as The Commodore and released in the United States first as a serial, then as the novel Commodore Hornblower. This is the fourth 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.
