C. S. Forester

Cecil Louis Troughton Smith (1899 – 1966 CE), better known by his pen name C. S. Forester, was an English novelist who rose to fame with tales of adventure and military crusades. His most notable work was the 11-book Horatio Hornblower series.

While serving in the Silesian Confederacy, Honor Harrington read a Hornblower novel during her free time aboard HMAMC Wayfarer, noticing a number of similarities between the main character and herself, including their initials.[1] (HH6)
