Audible Editor Reviews

"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." (Observer)

Publisher's Summary

Richard Sharpe, abandoned in enemy territory, has to trust in assistance from a hostile American privateer.

The invasion of France is under way and the British Navy has called upon the services of Major Richard Sharpe. He and a small force of riflemen are to capture a fortress and secure a landing on the French coast - one of the most dangerous missions of his career.

Through the reckless incompetence of a naval commander, Sharpe finds himself abandoned in the heart of enemy territory, facing overwhelming forces and the very real prospect of defeat. He has no choice but to trust his fortunes to an American privateer - a man who has no love for the British invaders.

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.

What the Critics Say

"Sharpe and his creator are national treasures." (Sunday Telegraph)

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

    Story
    "Brilliant Sharpe series."

    I was recommended the Sharpe series by a friend at the start of the year. It has been a real blessing in my life and I feel slightly saddened that there's only 2 or 3 more books to go. Thoroughly brilliant stories and the narrator adds SO much value. His name is Rupert Farley and what a talent he is, so much so that I wrote to him recently to congratulate him on his work in this series. Particularly good at the accents of the various characters. Listen to the series from book 1, you will love it. Well done to the author and narrator. Dr. A
