Master and CommanderBook - 1999
The first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels establishes the friendship between Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and intelligence agent, against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of life aboard a man-of-war are rendered: the conversational idiom of the men, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of wind and rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.
