Great continuation of the Sharpe series,
This review is from: The Sharpe Series (3) - Sharpe's Fortress: The Siege of Gawilghur, December 1803 (Paperback)
Cornwell has written another excellent Richard Sharpe novel.
For me, the most gripping part of this (and others in the series) is the realistic account of the battles and the effects on the soldiers. Being in the British Army at the beginning of the 19th century must have been hell.
Against the backdrop of blood and guts, the author has woven a good story with considered charaterisation. Recommeded.
Since this novel ends at the battle of Gawilghur (1803), and Sharpe's Rifles commences in 1809, I wonder how many more novels Sharpe can feature in.
