Sharpe's Regiment

I have listened to all the available Sharpe's series. It is far and away the best spoken series and this one is no exception. I always found myself wondering what would happen next. I found it hard to get out of the car at times so be careful about listening on your way to work. If you enjoy historical fiction you will love this series. I only hope that the rest of the series will become available on Audible.

Corruption in recrutiting

This story takes place between June and November 1913 (almost 200 years ago) in both Spain and London. The South Essex Regiment is not getting new men and Sharpe sets off to London to find out why. He finds corrupt politicians, an illegal recruiting ring that sell soldiers to other divisions and steals they wages and a shadow South Essex Regiment. Sharpe sets off to correct this wrong that provides the story with lots of suspense, intrigue and of course at the end of the book in Spain a famous Cornwell battle scene. Cornwell is in my opinion one of the best writers of historical fiction today. Frederick Davidson does a good job reading the book. I hope Audible keeps us stocked with lots of Cornwell books.
