About the Author

C. S. Forester

Cecil Louis Troughton Smith, born 1899, known by his pen name Cecil Scott "C.S." Forester, was an English novelist known for writing tales of naval warfare, such as the 12-book Horatio Hornblower series, depicting a Royal Navy officer during the Napoleonic wars.

The Hornblower novels A Ship of the Line and Flying Colours were jointly awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction in 1938. His other works include The African Queen, filmed by the legendary John Houston.
