Summary

Summary

C. S. Forester's Captain Horatio Hornblower eludes an American privateer and Richard Woodman brings Nathaniel Drinkwater out of retirement in this collection of twenty-one sea stories, fifteen of them written especially for this volume. From the Hawaiian coast to the shores of England, at Trafalgar, at Copenhagen, and on the Nile, daring exploits and breathtaking encounters quicken these pages by celebrated writers like David Donachie, Jacland Marmur, William Hope Hodgson, Kenneth Bulmer, Nigel Brown, Harriet Hudson, Peter T. Garratt, Peter Tremayne, Derek Wilson, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
