This was a fairly entertaining story about the British Army in India and Navy in the lead-up to Traflagar. The descriptions of the battle of Trafalgar were exciting and seemed historically accurate. Cornwell does a good job entwining an interesting plot in a historical time line. There are many colorful and engaging characters but little character development. In summary I would describe "Sharpe's Trafalgar" as a Tom Clancy-like treatment of the Napoleanic War Era; Sort of a "The Hunt for Red(white and blue)October - 1805".
