      'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.' George R.R. Martin

Review Quote

Praise for Bernard Cornwell and the Sharpe series We cheer Sharpe on. He has a kind of angry courage, an inability to stay away from a fight, and a permanent inner battle between his inclinations and his sense of duty. Wellington wound up a dangerous spring on the day he raised Sharpe from the ranks. Its our magnificent gain Terry Pratchett Sharpe is the epitome of a nineteenth-century, romantic working-class hero. Cool, flash and fragrant . . . Escape and enjoy Daily Express 'Cornwell describes military action brilliantly. He evokes all the sights and sounds and smells while managing to describe the fluctuations of the battle with enough vim to keep you in suspense&The Sharpe novels are wonderfully urgent and alive' Daily Telegraph Cornwell has maintained a marvellously high standard throughout the series&brilliantly lucid and compellingly exciting' Evening Standard Bernard Cornwell knows his man, knows how to harness his qualities to the services of good fiction, and does not miss a trick&Sharpe and his creator are national treasures' Sunday Telegraph 'The insubordinate, sarcastic and oversexed Richard Sharpe returns&Cornwell delivers the usual mix of strategy and strength  classic battle scenes and plenty of fisticuffs' Daily Mirror Cornwells combination of breakneck action and pigheaded man behaving badly  but with dazzling brio  is unbeatable. His historical setting is well observed, adding a degree of poignancy: an ancient civilisation destroyed by an army of brutalised illiterates, confused and far from home, but dogged and unquestionably brave Daily Telegraph
