Probably not. Oration seldom matches the power of imagination as one reads
Escaping from the Turks
All of the scenes describing how it was aboard a ship of war set in the time. I appreciated the descriptions of how a ship was navigated and handled in the time period of the book.
Hornblower is my obvious choice. Understanding how a seagoing man of that age thought and was able to assemble the knowledge and courage it took to command a ship of the time is fascinating. In today's wold of electronics including GPS it is hard to imagine how it was done in the past and a book like this gives a glimpse of what it was like.
The story was great but the oration itself could have used some improvement in cadence, volume, intonation, and pitch in comparison to the previous books presented in this series.
