Publisher's Summary

It is 1814, and the defeat of Napoleon seems imminent, if the well-protected city of Toulouse can be conquered. For Richard Sharpe, the battle turns out to be one of the bloodiest of the Peninsula Wars, and he must draw on his last reserves of strength to lead his troops to victory.

But before Sharpe can lay down his sword, he must fight a different sort of battle. Accused of stealing Napoleon's personal treasure, Sharpe escapes from a British military court and embarks on the battle of his life-armed only with the unflinching resolve to protect his honor.

Don't forget to check out the rest of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series.

    "Gotta love it"

    I really enjoy this series and reader. The action is engrossing and the history is not too intrusive.

    "Great stories, wonderful narrator"

    Each story is better than the last. Sharpe is a delightful, complex character. Davidson is a wonderful narrator. Highly recommended to fans of historical fiction.

    Story
    "underwhelming and disaapointing"

    Sharpe does not go to jail or die in this book. This is not shocking to you because of course he wouldn't. The protagonist of a series can't die, and in a military adventure like this he wouldn't be dishonored and go to jail.

    But the author tries to pretend like he may do this, which is ridiculous and uninteresting. The reader is not worried for the character that we absolutely know will be fine, thus there is no suspense. It just becomes boring.

    The major fault of the story is its handling of the Jane Gibbons subplot. Sharpes wife's part of the tale is emotionally stirring, genuinely suspenseful, then left awkwardly unfinished. Frankly, the end feels sloppy and unsatisfying. An unworthy end to an unworthy addition to the series.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "One of Cornwell's Best"

    I've enjoyed several of Cornwell's Sharpes series. This is one of the best. Great character development as well as a great plot. I recommend it.
