Hornblower and the "Atropos"

by C. S. Forester

Volume Five of the Hornblower series sees Horatio Hornblower in command of first a funeral barge on the Thames and then a small sloop in the Mediterranean. There seemed to be less military action in this tale than in some of the other volumes. What action there was served to highlight Captain Hornblower as a strategist, making due with a small ship and limited resources. It was an enjoyable read and made me eager to grab the next volume off the shelf.

(And, of course, put this volume on my shelf.)
