Best-selling novelist Bernard Cornwell crafts a thrilling tale from his immensely popular Richard Sharpe series. In 1809 Lieutenant Sharpe and his riflemen are in Portugal, preparing for Napoleon's next strike. The smaller English force will probably pull out before it's too late, but not Sharpe. His orders are to find the missing daughter of an English wine shipper. Just as Sharpe and his men begin their mission, the French launch their punishing assault.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 2/17/2014

    " Typically entertaining tale featuring the best British rifleman ever, Richard Sharpe. This book is set in 1809 and covers the French foray into Portugal. Listened to the audio read by the always impeccable Patrick Tull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 2/13/2014

    " Refreshing -- newly written, avoided 'the Sharpe formula' and even some development of Sharpe's character (before he is fully formed in the ice man mold). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 2/13/2014

    " Sharpe is on the way to another European campaign with his trusted side kick ,and a buxom lass "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingrid Hansen | 2/9/2014

    " Fantastic read, Sharpe is sooo cool and I just love the books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marko | 1/26/2014

    " I don't know what's been happening to me lately. I used to think Cornwell was an average author with generic plotting skills and decent characterisation skills. Now, after just finishing the great Sharpe's Rifles and the good Sharpe's Eagle (yes, I made a mistake in the chronological order - darn the conflicting listings) I was expecting a return to mediocrity, but I was happy to realise that Sharpe's Havoc is as good or perhaps even better than Rifles was. Certain Lieutenant Colonel in the story is a very well-crafted character and Cornwell's treatment of certain actual historical people also rings true and lifelike. "

    " Bernard Cornwell brings a good story & History together wonderfully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 1/9/2014

    " It was another Sharpe book -- maybe a bit better than some of the earlier ones because of the development of the Harper and Hagman characters... but still basically enjoyable fluff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 11/27/2013

    " as with all the series good fun "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross | 11/22/2013

    " Read for a second time after many years. I rate almost all of Cornwell's novels as 4 stars, but this one doesn't quite make it because the villian is rather too much over the top. Still a good story and certainly not to be skipped in reading the Sharpe's Rifles series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jansen Wee | 11/8/2013

    " Exciting and fast moving, and set against the background of the first French invasion of Portugal, and its subsequent ignominous expulsion by the Duke of Wellington. Sharpe is once again at the dramatic focal point of the big events. But he doesn't get quite involved with any girl this time round. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 10/14/2013

    " A little more contrived than some of the others but still a fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sho | 7/19/2013

    " Probably the best of them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Ghylin | 6/19/2013

    " I was a little disappointed in this one. Sharpe just doesn't seem to get anywhere either with his career or with the ladies. Everyone around him seems to think he is worthless not realizing how much he can accomplish. He is very much a solider's solider. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Darrow | 10/3/2012

    " Another solid, if formulaic, Sharpe story. Good for a beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 9/9/2012

    " I just wish Sharpe actually did all these things. I am always surprised at the end to find he is still fictional though most of the story is historically factual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul McNamee | 8/18/2012

    " Fun Sharpe romp, as usual. This time around Sharpe and his riflemen are trapped behind enemy lines in Portugal while under orders from a duplicitous colonel. Fine blend of historic details, fun characters and action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey Cavanaugh | 4/23/2012

    " A top-notch volume in the Sharpe series where our hero is cut off behind enemy lines and forced to battle traitors, the elements, and evil Frenchmen. Glorious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jansen | 8/3/2011

    " Sharpe does it again to the French "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 6/30/2011

    " Another solid, if formulaic, Sharpe story. Good for a beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 azdbackfan | 5/1/2010

    " Perhaps it was just the audiobook version but I missed the part at the end where Cornwall describes the history around which he built the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 12/26/2009

    " Not bad, though nowhere near as good as Sharpe's Rifles.

    5 stars reserved for Tolstoy!
