Book Description

1 Nov 2004 The Sharpe Series (Book 16)

A classic Sharpe adventure: Richard Sharpe and the Vitoria Campaign, February to June 1813

Major Richard Sharpe awaits the opening shots of the army's new campaign with grim expectancy. Victory depends on the increasingly fragile alliance between Britain and Spain – an alliance that must be maintained at any cost.

But Sharpe's enemy, Pierre Ducos, seizes a chance to both destroy the alliance and take a personal revenge on Sharpe. And when the lovely spy, La Marquesa, takes a hand in the game, Sharpe finds himself caught in a web of deadly intrigue and becomes a fugitive, hunted by enemy and ally alike…

Review

‘Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.' Sunday Telegraph

'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.' Daily Mail

'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.' Observer
‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.’ George R.R. Martin

From the Publisher

The third of the Sharpe series in the Peninsular, in chronological order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book... 19 Jun 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sharpe, wrongly accused of murdering La Marquesa's husband after an interrupted duel, goes on the run to clear his name and find the real culprit. Along the way he has to rescue La Marquesa from a convent and a distinctly unpatriotic partisan, and escape from the French, who want to send him into the depths of France as a prisoner of war. Tempted though he is to spend the rest of the war with La Marquesa, he knows he has to get back to the army and his beloved regiment with his knowledge of the treachery cooked up by Major Ducos and a very clever Spanish priest. He escapes as the French fortress at Burgos explodes, and finds his way back to the South Essex in the midst of the Battle of Vitoria. Believing him to be dead, his regiment are naturally startled to see him, though as they have just lost their commanding officer, they are also very relieved to have him to lead them. In the aftermath of the battle Sharpe has to save La Marquesa once again from the treacherous El Maratife, and along the way Harper picks up enough gold and jewels from the French baggage to make his own and Sharpe's fortunes.

This is a fantastic novel, the battle scenes described with Cornwell's usual flair, and all the action in between wonderfully fast-paced and engaging. A brilliant read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Honour Sharpe's way 31 Dec 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you have got this far in the Sharpe books you know what's coming.
Hardship, visceral fighting, appreciative women and victory.
Cornwell and Sharpe seldom disappoint.
If this is your 1st Sharpe book stop now and go back to the beginning,
Sharpe's Tiger you wont be disappointed.
Hardly highbrow stuff just a cracking read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharpe Goes Rogue 4 Sep 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First, I must confess, I am a fairly new passenger on the Sharpe bus. Being numbered 7 in the American series it was the 7th book I read, but one of my favorites! Sharpe is accused of a murder that he (of course) did not commit and is forced to "go rogue" to clear his name. Again he meets La Marquesa, the whore with the heart of gold, who helps him to forget his recently buried wife, and who provides him the opportunity to rescue the damsel in distress. Pierre Ducos provides one of the villains for this book, being the mastermind behind Sharpe's dishonour. Does Sharpe prevail? Does he what?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 24 May 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sharpe's Honour is an excellent book. If you have seen the film, then after you have started reading this book you will see that is much better than the video-all the Sharpe books are. Sharpe's honour is about the battle of Vitoria where Sharpe and Harper make there fortunes. Sharpe also once again meets the beautiful Marquesa. An excellent book.

Format:Paperback
Sharpe, wrongfully acused of murder, sets off in search La Puta Durada in order to clear his name of her husband's murder secretly engineered by Major Ducos. Sharpe, the continual underdog, manages to save his skin once again! Cornwell's work only seems to get better with time and this book is proof of his talent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic reading 28 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have always been a big fan of Bernard Cornwell and am currently reading through the entire Sharpe series and must say this is one of my favourites. Like all Sharpe novels it has the excitement which keeps you reading the book late into the night. Keep it up Bernard Cornwell!

Now that he has rid himself of Hakeswill, Cornwell concentrates on the deep plots once more to give Sharpe greater challenges to unravel. Great!
