Sharpe’s Fury: Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Barrosa, March 1811 | [Bernard Cornwell]

Sharpe’s Fury: Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Barrosa, March 1811

Sharpe has been sent by Wellington on a mission to Cádiz, now the capital of Spain, to rescue the British ambassador - who happens to be Wellington’s brother - from a spot of undiplomatic trouble. The city has been blockaded by the French but is supported by the British from the sea. It contains a rare mix of pro- and anti-British citizens, diplomats, courtiers, adventurers, and spies. Sharpe’s mission - complicated, undercover, and political - turns out to be completely different from the one on which he was sent.

Publisher's Summary

Richard Sharpe, the former private in His Majesty’s army who now commands a company of riflemen, finds himself fighting his old enemies, the French, in 1811.

Sharpe has been sent by Wellington on a mission to Cádiz, now the capital of Spain, to rescue the British ambassador - who happens to be Wellington’s brother - from a spot of undiplomatic trouble. The city has been blockaded by the French but is supported by the British from the sea. It contains a rare mix of pro- and anti-British citizens, diplomats, courtiers, adventurers, and spies. Sharpe’s mission - complicated, undercover, and political - turns out to be completely different from the one on which he was sent. It brings him through the besieging enemy army to triumph in the Battle of Barrosa, where the British, deserted by their allies, defeat an overwhelmingly stronger French force.

    "A fun read"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The battle scenes at the end were powerfully written. One can feel the amazing feat of arms and the accomplishment of the British
