Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series has consistently ridden the top of international best-seller lists since the first book appeared 18 years ago. Featured on American television's Masterpiece Theatre, the charming, valiant Richard Sharpe has amassed a huge fan club all his own.

Anticipating an uneventful voyage, the dashing young maverick discovers the intriguing and very married Lady Grace Hale on board the Calliope. But just as he wins his way into her heart, the ship is fired upon and, suddenly, he finds himself in the thick of one of history's most spectacular incidents: the Battle of Trafalgar.

    " The best of the Sharpe's so far (in story-date order). Great set-up. Great pace. Great characters (both heroes and vilains). Great action. Great moments of history. Doesn't overuse the word great. "

    " Excellent episode in the life of Richard Sharpe. Love the way Cornwell manages just the right mix of action,description and characterization to make his books lively and involving. You really care about Sherpe because he is basically a good and moral person. He says of himself: "I'm a soldier, not a bully." Woder if I like theses books so much because I saw the TV series first and now I always see and hear Sean Bean as I read the books. "
