In an age of heroes and death before dishonor, one man stands above the rest.

It is January 1812. Captain Richard Sharpe has one mission: to thwart Napoleon’s dreams of an empire. To accomplish that goal, Sharpe and the fighting men of the Light Company must seize the fortress of Badajoz, which looms on the border of Portugal and Spain. To lead an assault on its thick, sheer walls and battlements is suicide, yet Sharpe has no choice, for the stakes have suddenly become personal. Inside the walls are his wife and daughter, and only he can save them.

Outside is the misshapen, vengeance-crazed Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill, a man determined to kill Sharpe. Sharpe knows that in the heat of battle, only the cold steel of his battered sword and the ruthless bloodlust of a soldier at war will protect him from the danger of both sides.

    " great author who interweaves history into a story that is easily followed and hard to put down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Joe Suell | 1/9/2014

    " An obvious ploy to vary up the background for the story series and make Sharpe face the horse guards and the aristocracy back home. For those of us who are fans, it is a welcome change. The characters get some good personal growth. I also enjoyed the glimpse of England from the same time, the aristocracy, and the social strata of the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sara | 1/4/2014

    " Though Sharpe is so ruthless, he still inspires so much affection and loyalty. Hakeswill is truly frightening, a great example of how Cornwell can write really twisted characters and make them believable. "
