In Hornblower's Shadow
As Candice said previously, when searching for information on The General, my search results were often over shadowed Forester's Horatio Hornblower Series. There are links to fan sites such as this and plenty of links to buy the novels. There is even a DVD boxset found here based on the novels. When I told my Dad (who is an avid reader and averages about 2-3 books in a week) what we were reading this semester, he had never heard of The General, but when I mentioned CS Forester he immediately responded, "Didn't he write the Hornblower Series?". I think it's unfortunate that The General is over shadowed because it is a great work of fiction.
