Antoine, Sorry I was away from my computer all day or I could have helped to answer your inquiry. I have all the Hornblowers in my library. In addition to Captain Hornblower, R.N., the other omnibus volumes are The Young Hornblower and Admiral Hornblower. Like Hemingway, I recommend Hornblower to everyone literate I know. Regards, Doug Russell p.s. I even have a time-worn copy of Monsieur L' Aspirant de Marine Horatio Hornblower (Librairie Gallimard, 1953)

Dealing with his readings, I am puzzled by what he writes in The Grand Alliance (end of Chapter 23, "My meeting with Roosevelt" [Reprint Soc. ed, p. 343]): "...Lyttleton...had given me _Captain Hornblower, R.N._, which I found very entertaining." But the list of Hornblower books by C.S. Forester includes no such title. The novels published before August 1941 are listed as: - The Happy Return (1937) -A Ship of the Line (1938) -Flying Colours (1938) With three short stories: - "Hornblower and His Majesty" (1941) -"Hornblower and the Hand of Destiny" (1941) -"Hornblower's Charitable Offering" (1941) Churchill and his "syndicate" obviously did not check when sending The Grand Alliance to the publishers - I wonder what he meant by _Captain Hornblower, R.N._? Were there variants in the Hornblower titles ?
