9780007276264: Sharpe's Gold

Bold, professional, ruthless – hero and man of action

"The stench was thick by the hermitage and buzzing with flies, and Sharpe paused by the steps.There was almost a reluctance to go inside, not just because of the bodies but because of what the hermitage might not contain.The gold."

Fresh from battle and covered in glory, Sharpe and his regiment are called north by Wellington.On arrival though Sharpe is set on a desperate mission–to go behind enemy lines and secure the gold so vital to the success of the war.Success means riches–not just for the army, but for Sharpe and his men.

The enemy he faces strikes terror in to the hearts of all around –a renegade guerrilla band whose leader has a particular loathing for Sharpe who has stolen his woman.

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.

'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
