Publisher's Summary

It is 1814, and the defeat of Napoleon seems imminent, if the well-protected city of Toulouse can be conquered. For Richard Sharpe, the battle turns out to be one of the bloodiest of the Peninsula Wars, and he must draw on his last reserves of strength to lead his troops to victory. But before Sharpe can lay down his sword, he must fight a different sort of battle. Accused of stealing Napoleon's personal treasure, Sharpe escapes from a British military court and embarks on the battle of his life-armed only with the unflinching resolve to protect his honor.
Don't forget to check out the rest of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series.

Gotta love it

I really enjoy this series and reader. The action is engrossing and the history is not too intrusive.

the best jet?

this may be the best of the Sharpe Series so far as it has such a wide range of emotions, plenty of destinations and the usual action and adventure. It ties up a lot of loose ends. However, at times it is a little sad. However that's my point of view and I'm a lightweight.
