Bernard Cornwell Sharpe's Battle

SYNOPSIS

This eagerly awaited new novel in the Sharpe series takes Richard Sharpe and his company back to the spring of 1811 and one of the bitterest battles of the Peninsular War, a battle on which all British hopes of victory in Spain will depend. Sharpe is given responsibility for an Irish battalion of the King of Spain's household guard, ceremonial troops who aic poorly equipped and untrained for battle. While quartered in the crumbling fort of San Isidro, they are attacked by the Loup Brigade, an elite French unit commanded by the formidable Brigadier General Guy Loup. Sharpe has already clashed once with Loup, and the Frenchman has sworn that he will have his revenge. Sharpe finds himself used as a pawn in a game of political expediency, and after Loup's attack, he is faced with the ruin of his career and reputation.
