Description
Newly promoted in December 1812, Major Richard Sharpe leads his small force into the biting cold of the mountains between Spain and Portugal, in this 16th book in the Sharpe chronicles, from 1984. His task is to rescue a group of well-born women held hostage in a Spanish border town by a rabble of deserters—one of whom is Sergeant Hakeswill, Sharpe's implacable enemy. But the rescue becomes the least of Sharpe's problems, as a far greater threat is preparing to descend upon the little town. With only the support of his own company and the new Rocket Troop—the last word in military incompetence—to back his gamble, Sharpe cannot afford even to recognize the prospect of defeat. Bernard Cornwell grew up with the Hornblower novels, following C.S. Forester's fictional hero through Lord Nelson's navy during the Napoleonic wars, and created his army counterpart in Richard Sharpe, a rifleman in Lord Wellington's land campaign. Cornwell has produced 24 novels and stories in the series, which traces Sharpe's career from 1799 and the Siege of Seringapatam in India to an encounter with the exiled Napoleon himself in 1821, and inspired the British television series Sharpe, starring Sean Bean.
