I have enjoyed this series and can not wait to start the next book. I usually alternate the Sharpe series with Patrick O'Brian's Capt Aubrey series. I prefer Patrick Tull narration better but am getting us to Davidson. Cornwell is the master of battle scenes.

I like military fiction as a wonderful form of escapist entertainment. Great beach books. I read all of the 20+ volumes of Patrick O’Brian’s tales of the Royal Navy of 1800 and they were great – generally 5-star. I decided to embark on the Sharpe series as a break from more serious historical reading (or listening). The writing is not of the quality of O’Brian but the stories are real action dramas based on historical events involving the British army complete with “knights in shining armor” and black hearted villains. I have enjoyed three of the series so far. Shades of Horatio Hornblower.
