Summary

Major Sharpe finds himself a fugitive, hunted by enemy and ally alike.

Major Richard Sharpe awaits the opening shots of the army's campaign with grim expectancy. For victory depends on the increasingly fragile alliance between Britain and Spain - an alliance that must be maintained at any cost. Pierre Ducos, the wily French intelligence officer, sees a chance both to destroy the alliance and to achieve a personal revenge on Richard Sharpe. And when the lovely spy La Marquesa takes a hand in the game, Sharpe finds himself enmeshed in a web of political intrigue for which his military expertise has left him fatally unprepared.

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.

Critic reviews

“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)

Sharpe's Honour.

One of the best in the series. Almost matches Sharpe's Enemy and the fantastic narration by Rupert Farley who outdid himself reading the dying Hakeswell . Sharpe in this one goes off with a fortune - wonder if he'll buy himself a watch (doubt it)

one of the best

One of the best yet, if like me you've read or listened to all of the series I thought this one was perhaps one of my favourites. It starts with a gloomy Sharpe, has the usual twists and turns, revenge battles throughout and the usual love interest, (the one area that the character seems terrible at) and ends triumphantly (as do they all). Great narration as ever, God save Ireland!

Honourable Sharpe indeed

An often overlooked entry in the Sharpe series, this book is a classic; it has it all, betrayals, battles and intrigue, Sharpe's Honour is a must for any who are curious as to the adventures of Major Richard Sharpe!
