Welcome, fellow Hornies! This is the first and only blog dedicated to Horatio Hornblower, the young British naval officer whose life and times are chronicled in the works of C.S Forester. From his misadventures as a midshipman through his command of the H.M.S. Sutherland, his bout with typhus, and his promotion to Viscount Hornblower, we will cover every aspect of this remarkable man's career. For now, I would merely like to mention the noblest qualities possessed by our hero: his sense of duty and his drive to succeed. In the spirit of young Hornblower, I ask that you strive for a similar sense of duty and success in reading this blog and in posting thought-provoking responses. Ahoy, Hornies!
