The year is 1812, and Richard Sharpe has one mission: to thwart Napoleon’s dream of empire. Sharpe and the fighting men of the Light Company must gain control of two fortress cities in Spain if Wellington’s army is to stem the Napoleonic tide.
To stem the Napoleonic tide, Sharpe must capture a fortress—where his wife and infant daughter are trapped—while protecting himself from a fellow officer determined to destroy him.
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.
“The world may have a new literary hero. His name is Richard Sharpe.”—Philadelphia Inquirer
“A masterful blend of fiction and historical detail.”—Newsday
