Annotation The fourth novel in the Sharpe series. Richard Sharpe, recently promoted to captain, now leads his own green-jacketed riflemen as British and French forces are encamped on the Spanish-Portugese border. Sharpe's rival in the fast-paced action is the vicious General Guy Loup, commander of the notorious Wolf Brigade, whose men are caught brutalizing a small village. When Sharpe captures and executes two of the villains, he makes a powerful and conniving enemy in General Loup. The story comes to a climax during the Battle of Fuentes de Onoro.
First Line Sharpe swore. Then, in desperation, he turned the map upside down.
Editors Note The "Washington Post" has hailed "Sharpe's Battle" as a book that "combines those strengths that have come to characterize Bernard Cornwell's fiction--immaculate historical reconstruction and the ability to tell a ripping yarn."
Editors Note 3 As Napoleon threatens to crush Britain on the battlefield, Lt. Col. Richard Sharpe leads a ragtag army to exact personal revenge against a French general known for his acts of terror. Sharpe's Battle takes Richard Sharpe and his company back to the spring of 1811 and one of the most bitter battles of the Peninsular War, a battle on which all British hopes of victory in Spain will depend. Sharpe is given responsibility to lead an Irish battalion of the king of Spain's household guard, ceremonial troops untrained and unequipped for battle. While quartered in the crumbling fort of San Isidro, they are attacked by murderous Brigadier General Guy Luop's elite French brigade. Sharpe has witnessed General Loup's despicable was crimes before; to put an end to them, and to settle another more personal score, Sharpe must lead his company into the blood-gutted streets of Fuentes de Oñoro, where thousands of French troops have amassed, in a battle to the death.
