Soldier, hero, rogue - Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." ( Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." ( Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." ( George R.R. Martin)

Another great read by Mr Corwell. I felt some of the chapters were a bit of a specie filler but over all it is dam good read.

In the books this is where we meet Theresa, Sharpes tv love. But the story is more, greed, desperation, fight and flight, and a decision of huge morality. Expertly written, each chapter leading to more intensity. Richard Sharpe is a great hero, but he has friends willing to follow him, and from theses characters we learn snippets of history which show the detailed research taken before writing even starts.This then shows why Cornwell has been the master of historical fiction for nearly half a century.
