    Until AGINCOURT I had never read Cornwell...now I have read ALL of his books!

    Richard Sharpe, from private in the British Army up through the ranks, brings history alive without effort. All of the books in the SHARPE series teach without the reader realizing he has been taught. Reminds me of the John Jakes CENTENNIAL series back in the 70's. I am just glad I didn't have to wait for the next in the series to be printed. I bought ALL of them at once and read one every 3-4 days until I was finished and still want MORE!

    A must have for Sharpe afficionados

    As series go, the Sharpe series is historically accurate and action oriented. However, the local villain in this volume, comes across rather 2-dimensional, when compared with Sharpe's other foes. He's certainly as big a villain as the others but he could have been more developed, in my opinion. He's no Sgt. Hakeswill nor Captain Lavisser. On the other hand, there is more development of some of Sharpe's riflemen other than Sgt. Harper. An altogether enjoyable read that lays the groundwork for the next episode in the Shape saga.

    Agood historical novel

    In 1809 in the Iberian Peninsular, though isolated from his side¿s main forces, Richard Sharpe and his unit defend Oporto, Portugal from Napoleon¿s armies. The city and the surrounding area are home to the famous red wine and numerous influential English red wine-exporting families. His superior Captain Hogan assigns Richard to keep safe the House Beautiful wine heiress Kate Savage and keep an eye on slick Colonel Christopher.<P> As Richard and his commandos perform their current mission, the French attack them. Portuguese irregulars led by philosopher poet Lieutenant Vicente save the beleaguered English. The two units consolidate heading to Kate¿s winery only to arrive, as she is to marry treacherous Colonel Christopher.<P> In his eighteenth appearance as a soldier during the Napoleonic Wars era, Sharpe lives up to his name, retaining a keen freshness as he battles the French and the bureaucracy. The tidbits from history, of which there are plenty, are brilliantly interwoven into the taut story line so that the audience receives a smooth plot yet know what is fact and what is Bernard Cornwell¿s vivid imagination. Anyone who relishes the era, enjoys war stories, or is a historical buff should read the Sharpe novels that bring in focus the realistic atrocities of battle as few novels short of All¿s Quiet on the Western Front has achieved.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Over the hills and far away...

    Good, typical, Sharpe story but I have to admit that after reading all of the Sharpe books, some of them several times, I don't recall Cornwell using so many run-on sentences, seriously some of them take up almost an entire paragraph and can be quite distracting, it's something I'll have to look for as I reread his other books but otherwise a satisfying read and not overly burdened with battle descriptions like Sharpe's Waterloo and others.
