    PDF/EBOOK (The Commodore) C.S. Forester ¼ 2 Summary Compared to the earlier novels The Commodore is a much easier read possibly because Hornblower himself unbends much as a character so he's reminiscent of the youthful Midshipman and a lot likable He even gets smashed at a party and makes away with a CountessAlso there's a touch of Sharpe about this one well obviously the other way around because this feels much like HH changing history rather than the action being confined to w

Forester Bound waterways assassins in the imperial palace before he can return home to his beloved new wife and son as his instructions are to sacrifice every man and ship under his command rather than surrender ground to NapoleonHornblower is Hamlet in command of a battleship New York Tim. I think this is my favorite Hornblower book I don t know if that s just because it s been a while since I ve read the others they do all kind of run together in my memory or because this one seemed much tighter and cohesive than many of them I also loved the setting we don t generally read too much about the British Navy in the Baltic or in Russia during the Napoleonic wars so it was a pleasure to learn about thatMy delight in this volume might also have resulted from sheer comparison with the BBC adaptations of the series which I ve been watching recently The narrative from the perspective Hornblower s tortured psyche is an absolute wonder in comparison with the visual attempts This is one of those instances where the book simply has much to offer than the movie ever could

Forester Hornblower finds himself fighting Napoleonic forces in Russia in this extremely entertaining Christian Science Monitor chapter in C S Forester's beloved naval adventure series The year is 1812 Hornblower has been ordered to do everything possible diplomatically and militarily to p. This story marks a major turning point for Captain Sir Horatio Hornblower in ways than one can count He is no longer young no longer poor no longer trapped in a bad marriage For the first time he is based in the chill waters of the Baltic Sea And for the first time he is truly calling all the shots in charge of his own flotilla and given a free hand by the AdmiraltyBut there is a price to all this advancement While the complex politics of a Baltic teetering on the brink are uite interesting and there are some clever battle scenes Hornblower never seems to be in any real danger here He sees limited naval action and always commands the superior force at sea But than that as Commodore he is one step removed from the teeth of the action letting others manage the details On land he is largely relegated to the role of an observer dodging random cannonballs while proving a brilliant strategist than even the famed Carl von ClausewitzWhich brings us to the other problem While facing too little peril Hornblower achieves too much in this book As he racks up history changing score after score the story s plausibility becomes ever stretched Can Hornblower single handedly decide the fates of wavering Russia and Sweden Of course he can And let s throw in Prussia while we re at it And why not have the sea captain lead a decisive infantry charge from horseback too And foil an assassination to boot It s just too much and Hornblower s new invincibility makes his usual episodes of self doubt seem egotistical and phonyThere are two volumes in CS Forester s epic series and I ll read them But I can t help but feel that something magical has been lost along with Hornblower s youth and I m not sure it can ever come back
