9780140294347: Sharpe's Enemy (#6) (Richard Sharpe Adventure)

A classic Sharpe adventure: Richard Sharpe and the Defence of Portugal, Christmas 1812

Newly promoted, Major Richard Sharpe leads his small force into the biting cold of the winter mountains. His task is to rescue a group of well-born women held hostage by a rabble of deserters. And one of the renegades is Sergeant Hakeswill, Sharpe’s most implacable enemy.

But the rescue is the least of Sharpe’s problems. He must face a far greater threat. With only the support of his own company and the new Rocket Troop – the last word in military incompetence – to back his gamble, Sharpe cannot afford even to recognize the prospect of defeat. For to surrender – or to fail – would mean the end of the war for the Allied armies…

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

Bernard Cornwell worked for BBC TV for seven years, mostly as producer on the Nationwide programme, before taking charge of the Current Affairs department in Northern Ireland. In 1978 he became editor of Thames Television’s Thames at Six. Married to an American, he now lives in the United States.
