Combining stirring realistic battle scenes with subtle characterisation and rich period detail,¬†Master¬†& Commander¬†set new standards for its genre of sea-faring fiction and proved the start of a series both loved and admired. In their first adventure, Captain Jack Aubrey and surgeon Stephen Maturin, linked by a love of music and a suspicion of each other’s motives, form an uneasy alliance as they engage in dangerous action and complex intrigue off the Spanish coast.
