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.

Wow.

I had actually missed this book and jumped the gun straight to Waterloo. I’m SO glad I came back. Cornwell truly flexes his skills here. He takes a simple plot and turned it into a story of such incredible layers of drama, action, and the end is the best from anything Cornwell has written. A true gem.

Gotta love it

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

Almost done

can't believe that the first campaign is finally done. A most excellent novel, and it's sad that after so many adventures that it's almost done.

Sharpe is off the leash!!

This is the first book I’ve listened to in the Sharpe series that feels like an 80’s action movie... like the ones the Expendables movies tried to make viewers nostalgic for... pitting the hero against overwhelming odds, with the villain in a fortress on a hill protected by a bunch of goons. It was fun, but not the best Sharpe. 3.5 stars.

the best jet?

this may be the best of the Sharpe Series so far as it has such a wide range of emotions, plenty of destinations and the usual action and adventure. It ties up a lot of loose ends. However, at times it is a little sad. However that's my point of view and I'm a lightweight.

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.
