Three classic Richard Sharpe adventures
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.
Richard Sharpe and the Invasion of France, June to November 1913
Major Sharpe’s men are in mortal danger – not from the French, but from the bureaucrats of Whitehall. Unless reinforcements can be brought from England, the regiment will be disbanded.
Richard Sharpe and the Winter Campaign, 1814
The invasion of France is under way and the British Navy has called upon the services of Major Richard Sharpe. He and a small force of riflemen are to capture a fortress and secure a landing on the French coast – one of the most dangerous missions of his career.
