Master and Commander: 20 Volume Set by Patrick O'BrianAnthony Gary Brown. The final battle scene borrows heavily from Master and Commander. Many minor incidents, character quirks and snatches of dialogue are taken from the other 18 novels in the series.

In that same frame you will also find an index to the characters discussed here below.
