From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, the eleventh installment in the world-renowned Sharpe series, chronicling the rise of Richard Sharpe, a Private in His Majesty's Army at the siege of Seringapatam.

In the winter of 1811, the war seems lost. Spain has fallen to the French, except for Cadiz, now the Spanish capital and itself under siege. Inside the city walls an intricate diplomatic dance is taking place and Richard Sharpe faces more than one enemy.

The small British force is trapped by a French army, and their only hope lies with the outnumbered redcoats outside refusing to admit defeat. There, in the sweltering horror of Barrosa, Sharpe will meet his old enemy Colonel Vandal once again.

Sharpe’s Fury. The British and their feckless allies, the Spanish, attempt to contain Napoleon’s French troops in this work of historical fiction. As usual, their’s skullduggery, bloodshed, violence, gore and deceit. All of this plus, what passes for a happy ending --- or hero lives --- he’s got to, to fight for another day.
This might be a good time to tell you about Bernard Cornwell’s web site: http://www.bernardcornwell.net/ Or you might check out the reviews at Amazon.com/Sharpe’s Fury. Or you might just want to jump in there and get reading.
If this is your first reading of Cornwell’s books --- you’ve got an exciting treat coming up.

Be warned, I’ve found that after reading a few of the Sharpe novels that I’ve developed an urge to investigate further into the Napoleonic Wars. But enough about that for now.
