Hewitt: yes I have read eight or ten novels by O'Brian. I have quoted Master and Commander for the film, several friends of mine have known O'Brian through it.
George Huxtable: I know the film “Captain Horatio Hornblower” with Gregory Peck, but no Forester's novels. I am going to put these in my list.
Thanks to all.

Here's one that might not be on everyone's list: Carry on, Mr. Bowditch by Jean Lee
It is a children's book (I would guess aimed at about 5th grade). One the Newberry in 1956. Delightful fictionalized account of the life and career of Nathaniel Bowditch.

In the Carlists wars the Basque country cities:
and the country side, anchored in the past, were absolutims. British and French were with the liberals and most important ports served for their war ships.
In line with the historical accounts, I am interested
in authors of novels about the sea in past ages.
I have read books by Patrick O'Brian (Aubrey & Maturin, Master & Commander) and Alexander Kent (Richard Bolitho). Any review to other novels will be welcomed.
