The latest 'Sharpe Companion', revised and updated, and made into tow handsome volumes.
In Richard Sharpe, Bernard Cornwell has created one of the great heroes of historical fiction, whose exploits continue to thrill a wide audience. The novels, and the television adaptations starring Sean Bean, have succeeded in whetting the appetite of many readers for one of the most eventful and exciting periods in history. Packed with illustrations, fascinating historical and military background information, and contemporary accounts and anecdotes, 'The Sharpe Companion' provides an indispensable guide to the life and times of Richard Sharpe.
Since the original Companion was published five years ago, Sharpe has marched on. His exploits are now too many to fit into a single volume, so this first volume of the revised and expanded Companion focuses on the first 30 years of Sharpe's life: his boyhood in London, his experiences as a recruit, and his rise through the ranks during the Indian campaigns, the special mission that took him to Denmark, and his part in the Battle of Trafalgar. A must for every student of military history, and every fan of Sharpe.
