Mr. Midshipman Easy

In this stirring tale from the days of wooden ships, a young sailor enters the king's service with some firm but untried egalitarian notions. “Equality Jack” — known formally as Mr. Midshipman Easy — is initiated into the rigid hierarchy of the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. His adventures were recounted in 1836 by the founder and master of naval fiction, Captain Frederick Marryat (1792–1848), who entered the service as a fourteen-year-old midshipman and resigned twenty-four years later to devote himself to writing. He based this novel on his own experiences sailing with Lord Thomas Cochrane, the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey.
