It has been awhile since I read this one, but I have fond memories of reading it. The funeral mishap that occurs at the beginning of the novel is brilliant, and showcases Forester's great ability to fill a story to the brim with suspense both inside and outside of battle. Simple conversations become engaging duels. An important ceremony becomes, for our hero, a crisis. And the story concludes with a treasure-hunting mission that involves careful deception and wit. One of the better Hornblower novels, from my recollection.
