Bernard Cornwell‘s action-packed series that captures the gritty texture of Napoleonic warfare–now beautifully repackaged
Captain Richard Sharpe prepares to lead his men against the army of Napoleon at Talavera in what will be the bloodiest battle of the war. After their cowardly loss of the regiment’s colors, the men’s resentment toward the upstart Sharpe turns to treachery, and Sharpe must fight to redeem the honor of his regiment.
After the cowardly incompetence of two officers besmirches their name, Captain Richard Sharpe must redeem the regiment by capturing the most valued prize in the French Army—a golden Imperial Eagle, the standard touched by the hand of Napoleon himself.
Bernard Cornwell’s Richard Sharpe series takes its hero to the battle of Waterloo–and beyond. Several novels are the basis of a television miniseries. He was born in London and lives in Chatham, Massachusetts.
“A masterful blend of fiction and historical detail.”—Newsday
“A totally convincing picture of warfare, of hand-to-hand, sword-to-sword, bayonet-to-bayonet fighting.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer
