Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Fuentes de Oņoro, May 1811

In the spring of 1811, while quartered in the crumbling Portuguese fort of San Isidro, Richard Sharpe and his men are attacked by an elite French unit commanded by the formidable Brigadier Loup, and suffer heavy losses. Sharpe has already clashed once with Loup, and the Frenchman has sworn to have his revenge.

After the attack, Sharpe is faced with the ruin of his career and reputation, as the army’s high command tries to blame him for the disaster. With thousands of French troops massing at a tiny village nearby, Sharpe’s only hope is to redeem himself on the battlefield. To save his honour, Sharpe must lead his men to glory in the narrow streets of Fuentes de Oņoro.

Review:

‘What makes these books such a successful formula is the blend of action, well-researched historical setting, colourful characterization and a juicy sub-plot’
The Times

From the Back Cover:

'Sharpe's Battle' takes Richard Sharpe and his Riflemen back to the spring of 1811 and one of the bitterest battles of the Peninsular War, in the narrow streets of Fuentes de Onoro. Sharpe finds himself given the responsibility for the Irish Company of the exiled King of Spain's household guard, a motley crew indeed with which to defeat the elite French brigade under Brigadier Guy Loup. Once more Sharpe must fight against the odds to protect his honour, his career and his life.
