Summary
1805. Hornblower is both humbled and honoured in quick succession. After near disaster on board a canal barge, Horatio Hornblower is given his first assignment as Captain, taking charge of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop that will act as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon the Atropos is part of the Mediterranean assault upon Napoleon, and Captain Hornblower needs must execute a bold and daring salvage operation for buried treasure lying deep in Turk waters. Under the guns of a suspicious port captain and the threat of a huge Spanish frigate, the redoubtable Hornblower must steer his ship unscathed and triumphant. Fourth of the eleven Hornblower books
