This is the chronological book 10 of the Richard Sharpe series.

This book felt different than the other ones, and I enjoyed the shift in tone. There is a brief battle at Bussaco in Portugal, followed by a hasty retreat to the Lines of Torres Vedras near Lisbon. In that time, Sharpe manages to alienate himself from a painfully incompetent rival officer, launch a murderous feud with a local family, rescue a woman, and get trapped behind the enemy lines. Twice.

In all, this book was much more about Sharpe getting in and out of trouble and less about the battles themselves. The book opens and closes with the details of a battle, and while its always a treat to read about Sharpe in action, it was nice to see him in slightly calmer times. I thought that this story wrapped up a little too quickly for my tastes, (so much was happening and then it all just stopped) but overall it was a great story with a welcome change of pace.

As with all of the other recent Sharpe books, I highly recommend it.

Richard Sharp is a rifleman in the Nepolinic wars. The series starts in India and takes him through to Waterlou and beyond. You can start anywhere in the group without having to read the prior books.

This series is still holding my interest as I read them on the bus/subway. The author has good plot complications.
Lt. Sharpe is still unlucky in love and did not even get the promised month of leave as the book opens with the Portuguese and British making a last stand lest they have to evacuate Lisbon. Boney rules the European continent. This volume has an especially exciting end.
