Bernard Cornwell is an exciting adventure yarn about greed, guts and duty.

This time the British army is defeated and General Wellington fears that his forces are being pushed out of the peninsula. In order for Wellington to continue the war he needs money and lots of it. There is gold in some remote Spanish village and once Wellington hears of it, he MUST have it. And who do you think the General would give this important assignment to...none other than Captain Sharpe (naturally). Spain may be lost to the French but there is one thing the British forces have that France does not and that is SHARPE. If there is one thing Sharpe hates is losing. So you know he will do what ever it takes to win. Cornwell's blending of fact and fiction are amazing. You get the sense of being there, you visualize the battles and the scenes at the fortress of Almeida are spellbinding.
