No. 20 in the Richard Sharpe series. This, the culmination of the series to which all previous installments have pointed, is without question Cornwell¿s best book. While Sharpe¿s personal life does enter into it, at least 3/4 of the book if not more is devoted to the complex Battle of Waterloo which took place from Thursday, June 15 with Napoleon¿s invasion of the Netherlands to the final, epic, and hair-raising battle near the village of Waterloo on Sunday, June 18. Cornwell does a brilliant job of depicting the speed of Napoleon¿s invasion and the way he caught the Allies completely flat-footed.Sharpe is not with Wellington¿s army but instead is attached, as a Lieutenant Colonel, to the staff of the leader of the forces of the Netherlands, the young Prince of Orange. From this position, he watches helplessly as the French capitalize on mistake after mistake by Wellington¿s allied commanders, particularly the Prince of Orange; at the climax of the battle, he and Harper can not stand by any longer and thrust themselves into the fighting.History has recorded that Wellington won, but it was a close thing. Cornwell expertly milks every drop of excitement from this battle in yet another¿and his best¿page-turning thriller. It¿s a marvelous accomplishment.Highly recommended.

One of the best in the Sharpe series. Most of the book is dedicated to the Battle of Waterloo itself, but Cornwell's writing hooks the reader and won't let go. Un-put-downable.
