Publisher's Summary

Richard Sharpe returns to England to save the regiment.Major Sharpe's men are in mortal danger - not from the French, but from the bureaucrats of Whitehall. Unless reinforcements can be brought from England, the regiment will be disbanded. 

Determined not to see his regiment die, Sharpe returns to England and uncovers a nest of high-ranking traitors, any of whom could utterly destroy his career with a word. Sharpe is forced into the most desperate gamble of his life - and not even the influence of the Prince Regent may be enough to save him. 

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.

Critic Reviews

"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." ( Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

Sgt Harper's accent just wrong

it is clear from the book and series that Sgt Harper is from Donegal so why does he not have a Donegal accent? Instead he is cast with a heavy Belfast accent. Is this just a lack of research ? Whatever.. it's off putting and annoying.

Classic Sharpe

Classic Sharpe; good and evil on both sides of the class divide, fascinating historical detail and vast landscapes. A grand story, a flawed hero, and fabulous narration. On to the next one, I fear I may be running out of Sharpe to listen to!

Regimented Sharpe

Another excellent novel, read expertly by Rupert Farley. If you are new to Sharpe then please don't start here; though if you are already a fan and don't mind reading them out of order then this one is really one of the best.
