Who is Horatio Hornblower?
Like Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey and Maturin series, the Hornblower series written by English novelist C.S. Forester is about a British naval officer during the Napoleonic Wars.
The series follow Horatio Hornblower through his career and across the development of the Napoleonic Wars, from a midshipman and lieutenant to an admiral in the British Navy. Hornblower learned to be a leader and to survive during wartime but also peacetime.
