9780140294361: Sharpe's Regiment (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series)

“Apart from the rousing battle scenes, the author is at his best, evoking a long-gone era through clever detail.”—The New York Times Book Review

A corrupt political enemy is determined to disband the South Essex Regiment – and to destroy Major Richard Sharpe. 

Sharpe returns to England and discovers an illegal recruiting ring that sells soldiers like cattle to other divisions. The ringleaders know Sharpe is on their trail, and they try to kill him at every turn. But Sharpe is fighting for his command, and as he moves from the dark slums of London on the highest courts of political power, Sharpe will risk charges of treason and death for a final chance at revenge. 

“A ripping yarn.”—The Washington Post

“Consistently exciting . . . these are wonderful novels.”—Stephen King

About the Author:

Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe series takes its hero to the battle of Waterloo--and beyond. Several novels are the basis of a television miniseries. He was born in London and lives in Chatham, Massachusetts.

From Library Journal:

In the eighth volume in this superb series on the Napoleonic Wars (Sharpe's Siege, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/1/96), Sharpe must return from Spain to London to investigate why his supply of recruits has dried up. It's 1813, and Sharpe discovers a corrupt political enemy has diverted his recruits to sell them at auction. When he gets close to the source, the ring leaders try to kill him. Sharpe risks charges of treason to expose corruption at the highest level. The novel exposes the recruiting practices that, in fact, scandalized England and brought down prominent royal advisors. As usual, past and present sweethearts try to save Sharpe when danger threatens. Narrator-supreme Frederick Davidson provides the flavor of British life in the early 19th century on the lowest and highest levels as well as battlefield excitement as British troops cross into France from Spain. For young and old alike, this program is highly recommended.?James Dudley, Copiague, N.Y.
