After finishing school at Dulwich College he attended Guy's Medical School but failed to finish the course, preferring to write than study. However, it was not until he was aged twenty-seven that he earned enough from his writing to live on.During the Second World War, Forester moved to the United States where he met a young British intelligence officer named Roald Dahl, whom he encouraged to write about his experiences in the RAF.Forester's most notable works were the Horatio Hornblower series, which depicted a Royal Navy officer during the Napoleonic era, and "The African Queen" (filmed in 1951 by John Huston). His novels "A Ship of the Line "and "Flying Colours" were jointly awarded the 1938 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction.

C. S. Forester lived in the state of California. C. S. Forester was born in 1899 and died in 1966.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lord Nelson?

Nelson bio an insight into Forester's Hornblower  Mar 4, 2006
CS Forester's biography of Nelson was originally published in 1929, the same year he published two other books (his very good novel 'Brown on Resolution' and his so-so travelogue on the Loire, 'The Voyage of the Annie Marble.') So it's not surprising that this seems a slapdash affair. Though readable enough, Forester's histories and biographies are never quite strong, and all lack scholarly rigor. For this, he relied solely on Nelson's letters and general secondary sources. It also ends quite abruptly, with Nelson's death at Trafalgar--no conclusion, no retrospective, no summing up. He's shot, he falls, he dies.

However, the reader or Forester scholar looking into his famous fictional creation, Horatio Hornblower, will find much of great interest in this work, which predates the first of the HH novels by seven years. From the first name to the tendency toward sea sickness, there's much to see of the imagined naval hero in the real one.
