Editorial Reviews

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.

    sharpe's success

    Another winning entry in the sharpe series. Most of it takes place with sharpe and harps in england facing a different kind of enemy. Fans of sharpe and bernard cornwell will be most pleased.

    A refreshing break...

    A refreshing break from the life of war that Sharpe leads this book is very good. Sharpe and Harper are forced back to England to find missing troops that should have come to bolster the shrinking South Essex regiment. He finds that the new enlistees are being auctioned off to other regiments and that some of his old nemesises are the ringleaders. So Sharpe and Harper must go undercover and enlist as privates to infiltrate Foulness, the recruits traini9ng facility. What they find astounds them and they barely make it out alive. They then have to walk a thin tightrope in a risk that equals any of which they run 'in front of the guns in Spain.' Sharpe tries and succeeds in restoring his regiment's men.

    One of Cornwell's Best!!

    I have read all of Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' series and this is one of my favorite. It details Sharpe and Sgt. Harper returning to London to find out what happened to a battalion of recruits that are needed in Portugal. In addition to a very good story line, it is also informative in the measures that the British used to get 'volunteers' for its Army which I found very interesting. All in all, I have enjoyed all of the 'Sharpe' series but this one was one of the best.
