Set against the back drop of the 18th century Anglo-French wars, the bloodiest time in British naval history. Pellew, Captain of the Indefatigable, decides to put forward his protege Horatio Hornblower for the examination for lieutenant. Leading up to the exam Hornblower comes up against many challenges to prepare him for the difficult life as a lieutenant.
