The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

In this, the tenth volume in C.S. Forester's series of classic naval adventure tales, Horatio Hornblower must rescue a man he knows to be a tyrant from the mutiny of his crew—a dubious chore, but one that leads Hornblower, with the aid of his old love, Marie, to the glorious conclusion of his own battle with Napoleon.

Please Note:

This is the only Hornblower book we have any serious qualms about. In this story, Hornblower is married to Lady Barbara, but has an adulterous affair with Marie. Although this unfortunately does sometimes happen in real life, we of course do not wish to make it appear glamorous. Use caution if your Hornblower reader is a younger one.—Eli Evans
