    The nineteenth century dawns and the Napoleonic Wars rage as Horatio Hornblower faces the fury of the French and Spanish fleets combined. Amidst the hissing of wet wads, the stifling heat of white-hot cannon shot and the clamour of a mutinous crew, new Lieutenant Hornblower will need all of his seafaring cunning to overcome his first challenge in independent command on the high seas.

    Jean says: "Hornblower off to the Caribbean"
    "Superb. A terrific story, wonderfully read."

    Admiral of the Ocean Sea is Admiral Samuel Eliot Morison's classic biography of the greatest sailor of them all, Christopher Columbus. It is written with the insight, energy, and authority that only someone who had himself sailed in Columbus's path to the New World could muster. Morison undertook this expedition in a 147-foot schooner and a 47-foot ketch, the dimensions of these craft roughly matching those of Columbus's Santa Maria and Nina.

    Curdy says: "Very detailed, not an easy one"
    "Finest Columbus Biograghy"

    Where does Admiral of the Ocean Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Samuel Elliot Morison,s volume is unsurpassed. Christopher Columbus was a truly great man deserving a great biography. He got it with Morison's Admiral of the Ocean Sea.
    Enjoyably read and great for young readers.


    What other book might you compare Admiral of the Ocean Sea to and why?

    I would compare it to Whitiker Chamber's autobiography Whitness. It is brilliantly written and deals with great courage.
