Admiral Hornblower in the West Indies
1818: A hundred thousand men had died before defeat at Waterloo led to Napoleon’s exile on one of the world’s loneliest islands.
Now, a fast ship, flying the American flag, but bristling with armed Bonapartists, was en route to set him free once more. And Hornblower’s only weapons were his ingenuity and his faith in the handful of men he commanded.
This time it is Rear-Admiral Lord Hornblower, Commander-in-Chief in the West Indies. But his high rank doesn’t keep him from the forefront of the action against pirates, slavers, kidnappers and hurricanes.
