Critically acclaimed, best-selling novelist Bernard Cornwell takes listeners back to 1807 for an exciting tale of the Napoleonic Wars. Cornwell’s beloved hero, Richard Sharpe, is sent from England to Denmark on a secret mission. But as England and France fight over the powerful Danish fleet, Sharpe finds himself trapped in the war-torn city of Copenhagen.

Long haul commuter. Audiobooks keep me from causing serious physical harm to my fellow commuters. Bless you, Audible!
If you are a fan of Sharpe and Bernard, this one will not disappoint. Being the transitionatory book between Trafalgar and Rifles it provides a glimpes into Sharpe's more sensitive side as well as his savage, vengeful side. I'll say no more.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
I was unaware that England attacked Denmark during the Napoleonic wars. I found this story most fascinating. The description of life in Denmark at the time made me feel as if I was there. Cornwell is a master of battle scenes and the destruction of the City was very realistic. Can not wait to read more in the series.
Trouble Action Gold
The end where he donated to rebuild the lost orphanage
I liked alot of them some tender others full of action
Cornwell can write a very interesting story and I plan to read more
I would listen again, if only because I enjoy listening to nearly all of my Audible purchases multiple times. If I like a story, and I do like this story, it will absolutely get more than one listen and I am a huge fan of Bernard Cornwell's body of work, not to mention the life that Patrick Tull breaths into any story he narates.
If you like one Sharpe's book, I would be surprised if you would be disappointed in any of them.
Second Sharpe book I have listened to. Sharpe is a unique protagonist both honorable and a opportunist rogue. Very entertaining kind of like an adult version of Jacky Faber. Will listen to all the books.
I have listened to three of Bernard Cornwell books and I have liked them all. This story line I did not enjoy as much as the others. I will listen to more of the stories of "Sharpe". It is well written. Patrick Tull narrates very well.
Somehow missed this book when I read the series years ago. Great read and the narration was excellent. Not intellectual but great "mind candy"!
Yes, it is interesting and Patrick Tull is great.
I like all the Sharpe books and this is no exception.
This book shows what a superb story teller that Cornwell has become. Not as much action because of the nature of the events described in the story as other Sharpe novels, the author fill out even more detail in the already rich and complex life of Richard Sharpe. You see both his gentle and aggressive side more clearly here, and how thse decisions will create the path that Sharpe has taken in the other stories. And of course the reader Patrick Tull has given another great performance. Highly recommend this book.
I cannot say whether this is a good or poor book. I am new to the MAster and Commander series, and sought some advice from another reviewer who said this was a fine place to enter. I found it difficult to get attached to the story, and gave up on it. It is not for a newbie.
