Mr Midshipman Hornblower1794: As a seventeen year old with a touch of sea sickness, young Horatio Hornblower hardly cuts a dash in His Majesty’s Navy. Yet from the moment he is ordered to board a French merchant ship in the Bay of Biscay and take command of crew and cargo, he proves his seafaring mettle on the waves. With a character-forming duel, several chases and some strange tavern encounters, the young Hornblower is soon forged into a formidable man of the sea.
