We meet again major Hogan who this time opines ‘A wise man once said that the best way to win a war is to do it without fighting’ (p210). And the impossible is exactly what the formidable Captain Sharpe is asked to do when he's sent on an undercover mission to a small village in the Spanish countryside, far behind enemy lines.

With this going well back in time from where I last left Sharpe after Waterloo, there was some added poignancy around meeting back up with a few characters around Sharpe who would later die. His honours include a Silver Award from the Society for News Design, an Award of Merit from the Society of Publication Designers, Gold and Merit awards from the Art Directors Club, and an Achievement Award from the Society for Technical Communication. Teresa gets perhaps the most presence in the book than any other entry, and while that is welcome, most of it is squandered between superficial interactions with her and Richard and there is no further development of their relationship or romance. Over the years I've enjoyed Bernard Cornwell's books - have them all, filling one bookcase and spilling out onto the floor in several stacks. They’re tons of fun and you don’t have to switch your brain on too much while reading/watching them.He named his chief protagonist Richard Sharpe, a rifleman involved in most major battles of the Peninsular War. Also surely siege ladders are likely cut and measured near and well within sight of a Fort and not dragged for miles on a march. Napoleon's army may be defeated, but another enemy lies waiting in the shadows – a secretive group of fanatical revolutionaries hell-bent on revenge. To mark Folio’s 75th anniversary, Michael Ende’s The Neverending Story is published as a magical new edition, beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Marie-Alice Harel and bursting with exquisite design details.

The author surprisingly gets a bit wrong on his own Sharpe chronology, including his rank and various characters, how much this will irk you will depend on how immersed you are in the journey of Sharpe and his timelines.But the journey inevitably leads him towards a fateful showdown, as General Wellesley prepares to command his first field battle, a daring and desperate conflict that will leave a bloody mark on the pages of history itself and change Sharpe’s destiny forever.
