In the wake of a humbling incident aboard a canal boat in the Cotswolds, young Captain Horatio Hornblower arrives in London to take command of the "Atropos", a 22-gun sloop barely large enough to require a captain. Her first assignment under Hornblower's command is as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon "Atropos" is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasures that lies deep in Turkish waters and boldly challenging a Spanish frigate several times her size.
