About this deal

Bernard Cornwell brings all his considerable descriptive skill to bear on the infamous Battle of Assaye, described by General Arthur Wellesley himself as the battle of which he was most proud. Yes, the old favourites were back, Teresa, Hogan, Dan and Harris, but we’ve all been here before and I’m sure we were all wanted a new and exciting adventure, alas, it’s a rehash of old. He's previously portrayed as skillful and is the best shot yet old and frail Now he is literally everywhere.

SHARPE’S COMMAND is the brand new novel in the bestselling historical series that has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Richard Sharpe, the most brilliant - but the most wayward - soldier in the British army, finds himself faced with an impossible task. 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.Cornwell is best known for his ongoing ’Sharpe’ series, which traces the career of Richard Sharpe in the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars – a series directly inspired by C. Gravely injured and forced to play dead, Sharpe survives and, swearing he will have his vengeance, commits himself to tracking Dodd across the ravaged landscape. In 1987, he also published Redcoat, an American Revolutionary War novel set in Philadelphia during its 1777 occupation by the British.

Folio commissioned Hokyoung Kim for the artwork, while the late author’s wife, Wendy Benchley, provides a fascinating new introduction. These were A Crowning Mercy, published in 1983, Fallen Angels in 1984, and Coat of Arms (aka The Aristocrats) in 1986. this is indicative of the entire novel- interactions and scenarios that are literally repeated multiple times, even among the action pieces, like Daniel Hagman asking if he can but a ball in someone's head. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. While Sharpe’s role in the battle to destroy Forts Napoleon and Ragusa as well s the French pontoon bridge over the Tagus River at Almaraz is entirely fictitious, it makes for page-turning reading.

There are smaller things like Theresa not having a rifle and asking for one, yet she should have one by this point. Sharpe was essentially Sean Bean as Sharpe – which is fine for the films, but doesn’t work on print as he’s never been Sean Bean in the book series? Sharpe takes advantage of the situation, thinking what the officer should do to win the battle, but the officer does not. They also requested that the story feature a large role for Spanish characters to secure co-funding from Spain.
