The DVD and book twin pack of Master and Commander is published by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and we have six to give away if you can answer this question correctly: Master and Commander is set during the Napoleonic Wars, the Vietnam War or the Boer War?

Send your answers on an email or postcard marked Master and Commander to or Harvey McGavin at Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. Entries close September 1.
