Hornblower : Beat to Quarters C.S. Forester
Publisher: Back Bay Books

Hornblower rises from midshipman to admiral in a series of novels. Captain Keene comes aboard and sends for Horatio to meet him in his quarters. This is where learn (A) a little more about Horatio's background and his connection to the fleet, and (B) that the good We learn that Simpson helps himself to whatever he damn well pleases -- he's pretty much the asshole from school who beat you up and took your lunch money. Hornblower's exciting adventures, his coolness and inventiveness, and his weakness for women made him popular. Factual error: When Hornblower orders "Beat to Quarters" before the second engagement with the Natividad, none of the cannons are bowsed up. Hornblower was played by Gregory Peck in 1951′s Captain Horatio Hornblower. If you'd like to read the Hornblower series, I suggest (as I do with the Aubrey/Maturin series) that you start at the beginning. Forester himself worked on the script for the 1951 film, which mines its plot from three Hornblower books (Beat to Quarters, Ship of the Line and Flying Colours). Any book will stand alone, however, and my personal favorite is Beat to Quarters. Hornblower first appeared in 1937 in the novel The Happy Return, later released in North America as Beat To Quarters. Beat To Quarters-A Novel Of Captaon Horatio Hornblower Nelson.
