Hornblower and The Indefatigable by Robert Taylor
Winter in the Bay of Biscay brings ferocious gales, mountainous seas and bitter cold discomfort for ships crews. Early in his assignment aboard the British Navy frigate Indefatigable, Horatio Hornblower, C S Foresters dashing 18th century naval officer, experienced the worst of conditions at sea while blockading the ports off the west coast of France.
Robert Taylors painting depicts an exchange of cannon fire between Indefatigable on the left- and a 40-gun French frigate attempting to run the blockade on a chill winters morning. Moments later the two hulls crashed alongside each other and the Frenchman was boarded and taken.
