Publisher's Summary

Richard Sharpe, who alone can recognise the top French spy, is under orders to capture him alive.

Richard Sharpe is once again at war. But this time his enemy is just one man - the ruthless Colonel Leroux. Sharpe's mission is to safeguard El Mirador, a spy whose network of agents is vital to British victory.

Sharpe is forced into a new world of political and military intrigue. And in unfamiliar surroundings of aristocratic Spanish society, his only guide is La Marquesa - a woman with her own secrets to conceal....

Soldier, hero, rogue - Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.

What the Critics Say

"Sharpe and his creator are national treasures." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." (Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." (Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

    "Another excellent audiobook"

    I have loved these books for years, and I love the narrator's reading of them. It's just how it sounded in my head (except he's better at the accents!)

    "Near Death"

    This is onetime that Richard Shape is beaten and is so near to death. Sharpe still gets the girl.

    "Brilliantly written and superbly narrated"
    What made the experience of listening to Sharpe's Sword: The Salamanca Campaign, June and July 1812 the most enjoyable?

    Like most followers of Sharpe, I have read all the books and watched the series. Audio books from Audible adds a new level of enjoyment not least because Rupert Farley is supreme. Voices, accents ... a joy to listen to. Only three left! What then?


    What other book might you compare Sharpe's Sword: The Salamanca Campaign, June and July 1812 to, and why?

    The whole Sharpe series

    Story
    "not so sharpe"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    it was just bearable the book was probably a good book but the narrator isn,t the best for the story i think i have been spoilt with the sharpes books read by sean bean who played sharpe in the series


    What other book might you compare Sharpe's Sword: The Salamanca Campaign, June and July 1812 to and why?

    sharpes tiger the story and fight scences


    What aspect of Rupert Farley’s performance would you have changed?

    the voice tends to drone a little and can be dull


    Did Sharpe's Sword: The Salamanca Campaign, June and July 1812 inspire you to do anything?

    go back and listen to some earlier books read by sean
