Would you like to tell us about a lower price? . I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire set of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series books, having read all 21 books twice, and will probably read them again in a few years.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire set of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series books, having read all 21 books twice, and will probably read them again in a few years. I also own and have watched several times the entire set of 18 DVDs featuring Sean Bean as a most believable Richard Sharpe, and which I've enjoyed even more than the books.

Sharpe’s Honour Richard Sharpe and the Vitoria Campaign, February to June, 1813 Bernard Cornwell Content Dedication Quote Prologue Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter. Perhaps a hundred men cheered from the sides of the rock pit, while, beneath them, two men tormented a black, angry bull that was slick with the blood drawn from its weakened neck muscles. The animal was weak anyway, ill fed through the winter, and its charges were pitiful, easily evaded, and its end swift.

However he did publish a few successful standalone novels like The Fort (2010).

Cornwell began writing a short series Sharpe’s Eagle and Sharpe’s Gold (1981) and then later Sharpe’s Company (1982). However he did publish a few successful standalone novels like The Fort (2010). The Sharpe series was the first series undertaken by Cornwell. The first 11 books of the series involves Sharpe’ s adventures in the Peninsular War over 6-7 years. Cornwell decided to write a prequel quintet to the first 11 books – Sharpe’s Tiger, Sharpe’s Triumph, Sharpe’s Fortress, Sharpe’s Trafalgar, and Sharpe’s Prey. This quintet follows Sharpe’s adventures in India.

Created from first-hand written accounts and contemporary military manuals of the time, this text presents an insight into the nitty-gritty of everyday life for the British soldier in wartime leading up to the Battle of Waterloo. It includes photos of original items of equipment and of modern day re-enactment groups, revealing what it was really like for ordinary soldiers and their camp followers. Find out how the rifle developed from the musket; what kit the soldiers carried; how they kept dry in the mountains of Spain; what they ate; how the infantry faced charging cavalry; what the battlefield was like after "victory". Re-enactment is a growing "family" activity, so there were plenty of troops and "camp followers" to help the author illustrate the lives of the men and indeed the women and children who accompanied the regiments on campaign.
