Plot Summary

Sir Edward Pellew visits Horatio Hornblower who is jail in Jamaica awaiting his trial on a charge of making a mutiny. His problems began six months earlier when he was appointed Third Lieutenant aboard the HMS Renown under the famous Captain James Sawyer. It soon becomes apparent to several of the officers, including Horatio's friend Archie Kennedy who is aboard ship as Fourth Lieutenant that the Captain is suffering from madness of some sort. He is cruel and sees conspiracies everywhere. Both Horatio and Midshipman Welland prove to be the particular objects of his wrath. The situation is not helped by an inexperience First Lieutenant who does not command the Captain's respect and a newly arrived Second Lieutenant who doesn't seem ready to challenge the Captain in any way.

Trivia The part when a sailor falls to his death when captain Sawyer threatens to flog the last man down from working aloft was based on a really incident. On 20 September 1797, Captain Hugh Pigot of the HMS Hermione made the same threat, and three sailors died as consequence. Captain Pigot ordered the bodies thrown to the sea, without further ceremony, with the words "throw the lubbers overboard". Concidentally, there are other similarities between the fictional HMS Renown and the real HMS Hermione: both of the happened at roughly the same period. Also, a midshipman named David Casey was humiliated by Pigot -in this case forcing him to kneel before him-, also, there were lieutenants named Archibald and William, the ship did sail into Spanish waters (where she was retained) and, when recaptured from the Spanish in 1799, the ship was renamed HMS Retaliation (similar to HMS Renown). The final coincidence is that Pigot's practices ultimately led to mutiny, which claimed his life. See more »
Goofs When Captain Sawyer orders grog at high noon, he shouts "We'll splice the Main Brace!" which draws a cheer from his crew. Now the phrase "Splice the Main Brace" is a celebratory call before a drink; however, during the age of sail under its original meaning, the phrase was an order to undertake one of the most difficult tasks on-board ship involving splicing the principal line controlling the rotation of the main sail (anyone who desired to do it received an extra issue of rum). The task was long and arduous and critically important for the safety of the ship. Thus, when Captain Sawyer gave this order, his crew would have been looking at hours of work ahead of them with no reason to cheer. See more »
