Summary
  • Horatio Hornblower and a force of seven men capture a small French ship, La Reve. He is rewarded with his first command, sailing the ship to Britain. Traveling with him is a beautiful and intriguing duchess and a vital package of documents bound for the Admiralty. In a thick fog, the La Reve strays into the path of the Spanish fleet. The duchess is brought aboard the enemy's flagship, while Hornblower and his crew are exiled on a remote island. But when a ship sinks offshore during a violent storm, he convinces his captors to let him mount a rescue operation, promising not to escape
