Sharpe's Command (Hardback)Bernard Cornwell (author)
The master of historical military fiction delivers another unputdownable entry in the mega-selling Sharpe series as Britannia puts her faith in our maverick hero to defend her troops from French forces in early nineteenth-century Spain.
Sharpe is back. The brand new novel from Bernard Cornwell in the globally bestselling Sharpe series.
Spain, 1812. Richard Sharpe, the most brilliant - but the most wayward - soldier in the British army, finds himself faced with an impossible task.
Two French armies march towards each other. If they meet, the British are lost. And only Sharpe - with just his cunning, his courage and a small band of rogues to rely on - stands in their way...

“What time period is this set in?”
I’m updating my chronological list of the Sharpe’s novels, in anxious anticipation of this next jewel; and, I wanted to know where this story falls in the timeline. I know it’s In Spain sometime in 1812.
“Welcome Back Richard.”
Bernard Cornwall at his best. Once I started to read the book I couldn't put it down.
“Absolutely loved it”
A great Sharpe book, thoroughly enjoyed the read, and all the great characters, really cannot get past visualising the characters from the TV series.
But what is very annoying, is that I finished it over two days... More
