Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant-Colonel Sharpe, sidelined on the royal staff, magnificently siezes command at the final moment of the great victory.

It is 1815. Sharpe is serving on the personal staff of the prince of Orange, who refuses to listen to Sharpe's reports of an enormous army, led by Napoleon, marching towards them.

The Battle of Waterloo commences, and it seems as if Sharpe must stand by and watch the grandest scale of military folly. But at the height of battle, as victory seems impossible, Sharpe takes command, and the most hard-fought and bloody battle of his career becomes his most magnificent triumph.

Soldier, hero, rogue--Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles, whose green jacket he proudly wears.

What the Critics Say

"Sharpe and his creator are national treasures." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." (Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." (Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

    "Gripping"

    I've read/listened to several other Sharpe novels and watched the whole TV series. Nevertheless this was surprisingly and utterly gripping! I now have to check all the history books and read around Waterloo.

    Story
    "I know this is historic fiction: but ..."

    I have been to Waterloo more than once and have a kitchen tile from Hogarth Farm still stained with blood on it's rear. I can not image how it felt to have been in the battle. But following Sharp brings it to new life and I am awre struck by the bravery of 'all' the men who where there twice as much thanks to this account of the actions. Next time I will see the field of Waterloo in a new and terrible light yet again.
