9780007452958: Sharpe's Battle: The Battle of Fuentes de Oņoro, May 1811 (The Sharpe Series, Book 12)

Richard Sharpe is fighting for his Irish battalion and his own honour through the blood-stained streets of the town.

Quartered in a crumbling Portuguese fort, Richard Sharpe and his men are attacked by an elite French unit, led by an old enemy of Sharpe’s, and suffer heavy losses.

The army’s high command blame Sharpe for the disaster and his military career seems to be ruined. His only hope is to redeem himself on the battlefield. So with his honour at stake, against an overwhelming number of French troops, Sharpe leads his men to battle in the narrow streets of Fuentes de Oñoro.

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.

Review:

‘Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.' Sunday Telegraph

'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.' Daily Mail

'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

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.
