Lieutenant-Colonel Sharpe is a man with a reputation. Born in the gutter, raised a foundling, he joined the army twenty-one years ago, and it’s been his home ever since.

So when, the dust still settling after the Battle of Waterloo, the Duke of Wellington needs a favour, he turns to Sharpe. For Wellington knows that the end of one war is only the beginning of another. Comes packed with goodies, treats, magazine & postcard bundle and bookmark!

Fifteen years is a long time to wait for someone as popular as Richard Sharpe. But Sunday Times reviewer Nick Rennison loved it: "A very welcome return," he enthused.

What the Critics are Saying

Sharpe and his creator are national treasures


Strong narrative, vigourous action and striking characterisation, Cornwell remains king of the territory he has staked out as his own.


‘Like Game of Thrones, but real.


Blood, divided loyalties and thundering battles


A violent, absorbing historical saga, deeply researched and thoroughly imagined
