From the Jacket

A rollicking sea adventure, set in the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Mr. Midshipman Easy follows the escapades of a young midshipman who enters the King''s service with some ideas that run badly afoul of the standards of naval discipline! The author was an actual 19th-century British naval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester or Patrick O''Brian. Captain Frederick Marryat survived fifty naval battles and served on the crack frigate Imperieuse under Lord Cochrane - the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey. Mr. Midshipman Easy is said to have been inspired by Cochrane''s adventures as a young midshipman.

About the Author

Captain Frederick Marryat (1792–1848) was an actual 19th-century British naval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester and Patrick O''Brian. He survived fifty naval battles on the crack frigate Imperieuse under Lord Cochrane—the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey. In addition to plenty of cannonfire, battle strategy, peril, and passion—liberally sprinkled with wit and fine turns of phrase—Marryat''s real-life naval experiences lend his novels a truly remarkable authenticity.
