Waterstones Says

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.

Exclusive Edition -  delve into the history behind Sharpe's Command with an exclusive Q&A with Bernard Cornwell.

A Standard Edition is also available

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...

Praise for Bernard Cornwell:

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

'Like Game of Thrones, but real.' - The Observer

'Blood, divided loyalties and thundering battles.' - The Times

'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.' - George R.R. Martin

'He's called a master storyteller. Really he's cleverer than that.' - The Telegraph

'A reminder of just how good a writer he is.' - Sunday Times

'Nobody in the world does this better than Cornwell.' - Lee Child

'Cornwell's skill [is] in ageing his warrior-hero, who now creaks as he fights and is haunted by those he has loved and lost.' - The Times

'The master still adding to his wonderful Saxon Chronicles.' - Sunday Times Magazine

'Legendary ... excellent storytelling, as ever.' - Sunday Sport

'A violent, absorbing historical saga, deeply researched and thoroughly imagined.' - Washington Post

“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
