The Real Hornblower: The Life and Times of Admiral Sir James Gordon, GCB
by Bryan Perrett 
In this thoroughly researched book the author argues convincingly that Forester's model was Adm. James Gordon, a flesh-and-blood hero of Nelson's navy. Gordon entered the Royal Navy as a semi-literate eleven-year-old and rose to become Admiral of the Fleet. He took part in major sea battles, frigate actions, single-ship duels, and operations far behind enemy lines. It was the fire of Gordon's ships against Fort McHenry that inspired the American national anthem. When he died, after more than seventy-five years of service in the navy, The Times called him "the last of Nelson's captains."
