Publisher's Summary

January, 1812. Looming on the border of Portugal and Spain is the fortress of Badajoz. To lead an assault on its thick, sheer walls and battlements is suicide, yet Richard Sharpe must lead one. Inside the walls are his wife and daughter, and only he can save them. Outside is the misshapen, vengeance-crazed Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill, a man determined to kill Sharpe. Sharpe knows that in the heat of battle only the cold steel of his battered sword and the ruthless bloodlust of a soldier at war will protect him from the danger of both sides.Browse more from Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series.

Sharpe's Company

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 find the Cornwell Sharpe's series to be excellent tales. However, Frederick Davidson's narrative is terrible! Nothing at all as Sharpe should be portrayed - his affected accents are patently fake - especially the Irish! Ruined what should have been a good story - no more for me!
