Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World - This ship is England

Posted on: October 29, 2003 | Views: 159 | Comment

Captain Aubrey speaks to his crew, rallying them before the coming sea battle with the French ship, Acheron, a battle in which the British ship, the HMS Surprise, is outnumbered but in which surprise is on the English side.

A British captain whose career aspirations seem to have hit a sandbar finds himself on a creaky ship delivering mail in the Mediterranean during the Napoleonic Wars. Suddenly, he's got the opportunity to defend the dignity of the Empire itself, but his bark has been damaged and his crew has suffered at the hands of enemy fire. Will he turn back and lick his wounds or move forward toward glory? Based on Patrick O'Brien's novel Master and Commander, which was modeled on the Mediterranean exploits of Lord Cochrane at the turn of the 19th century.
