Sharpe's Rifles and the Spanish face several attacks from the murderous French and there is a love interest in Louisa, a Methodist English girl with a horror of an aunt - who is firmly put in her place by a "foul mouthed" Sharpe! There were a couple of twists in the story and the battles were different and not boring as I found in the siege scenes in "Fortress". I would recommend this book, especially if you are interested in the historical events surrounding the fighting in 1809 between France and Spain, Portugal and England.

Richard Sharpe And The. French Invasion Of Galicia, January 1809. Brown cloaks hid the pale green coats of the French Dragoons. These Frenchmen had followed Vivar every mile of his bitter journey but, while he struggled in the highlands, they rode in the valleys where there were roads, bridges, and shelter. On some days the weather would stop the French and Vivar would dare to hope that he had lost them, but whenever the snow eased for a few hours, the dreaded shapes would always appear again. Now, lying in the shivering wind, Vivar could see the enemy horsemen unsaddling in a small village that lay in the valley’s bottom.

Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and a detachment of riflemen join the assault of a strong French force holding the Holy City . There is little Sharpe would enjoy more. Soldier, hero, rogue – Sharpe is the man you always want on your side.

Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and a detachment of riflemen join the assault of a strong French force holding the Holy City of Santiago de Compostela. Cut off from the rest of the army and surrounded, their only hope of escape is to accept the help of the Spanish, but this assistance comes at a price: to join the assault on the holy city of Santiago de Compostela, held by a strong French force.

Stranded in Spain as the British army retreats, distrusted by his men and surrounded by the enemy, Richard Sharpe finds an ally in Spanish calvaryman Blas Vivar, who possesses information that can change the course of the war

Although written several years into his run of Richard Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell uses Sharpe’s Rifles to show us the first meeting between Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and Private (though not for long) Patrick Harper. Set during the retreat from Corunna, one of the British Army’s worst military defeats, the book centers upon our eponymous heroes and a rag-tag band of Riflemen from the 95th as they undertake a harebrained quest to assist a Spanish major fulfill a mission of great strategic importance. Cornwell checks the usual Sharpe boxes here: a woman who flirts with Sharpe but ultimately rejects him; copious action and mayhem when the French army enters the picture; daring escapes and dogged pursuits; and above all else, the scrappy Rifles officer’s habit of winning the day no matter what the cost. It’s fair to say that if you’ve read one Sharpe, you’ve read them all, and that is no bad thing. Fans of the series will appreciate getting more of the same. For those readers who are late to the party and want to see why this character has endured for decades, this is a great jumping-on point. You won’t be disappointed,

This is the start to the best series of historical fiction re: the 19th C. Wars ever written. Better than Hornblower and Aubrey, better than Soldiers 3. The prose is excellent, the characters compelling, the battle descriptions realistic yet interesting, and the descriptions of scenes are vivid. . I give this book and. the rest of the series my highest recommendation

Well. That was exciting! I’ve read a number of Mr. Cornwell’s books so the quality of writing is no surprise. But I so love a good fighting story well told, with a human hero and faithful yet truculent sidekick; a winsome heroine is always nice, and, of course, vicious, sneering villains to cut down like the curs they are. Je suis content.

This book had me thinking about the characters while going about my day. Could not get them out of my head. Great book, well written and mostly gives an accurate picture of the times, and Napoleon's war in Spain. The hardships endured, the battles fought, all so very real and left me feeling I was part of it all. Fascinated wt Sharpe and Harper, and really liked Vivar as well. If you enjoy a really good historical novel filled wt great battle scenes, you'll relish this book as much as I did.

Richard Sharpe is an outsize rascal/hero, which you have to be if your purpose in life for much of a decade is defeating a real Napoleon and French soldiery. It helps, too, if you're fictional, a brainchild of a prolific English writer such as Bernard Cornwell, now living in the United States. I like the writer's style and characters and plots. I like his books, which must number in the hundreds or thousands. I've been trying to read them all, but every time I think I have a handle on them a few more pop up. Right now I am trying to read the Sharpe series, at least that portion of it dealing with the Peninsular Campaign leading to Napoleon's resignation and exile. I think there are 12 or 13 books of Sharpe's adventures in Portugal, Spain and Southern France, but I can't be certain. There is something else that is uncertain. Just after you scour Amazon and Cornwell's Internet sites for titles and you think you have located them all, he writes another one that drops right in the middle of the series. I have been reading these books and have seen some films since the 90's, and I have lost track of which I have seen or read, so I am starting over with Sharpe's Rifles. I am not disappointed. To set the stage: Napoleon is riding high. He has not yet lost the Grande Armee to the Russian winter, his troops have just crushed the Spanish and the British Expeditionary Force helping Spain is caught inland with its pants down. The book opens in the winter of 1808 as British General Sir John Moore's army is hightailing it to the sea in Northwestern Spain and hoping for evacuation to safety. A modern reader might remember a similar situation in the 20th Century when the BEF was forced to the sea following the French collapse in World War II. Sharpe wasn't there in 1940, but he was in the rear guard of Moore's command as it desperately held off the French in outliers of the Pyrenees Mountains in the winter 1808-09. The column is hurrying along with French Hussars almost alongside. Lt. Sharpe is a rifle officer. His quick and decisive protective actions show that Cornwell, who knows his British history, also understands his small unit tactics. The riflemen of those days were not strictly line troops but were skirmishers, peripheral fighters compared to the regular soldiers who fought in close ranks with muskets. The rear guard did well for a time. Eventually though, Sharpe's section got cut off. They were alone in a Spain crawling with the French enemy. Did they head west trying to catch their fellows? North to find their own exit port or south where they had heard there might be a small British force still in Portugal? To find out, you must buy the book and read the adventures they had yourself. You can count on this, for sure: Sharpe and his not-so-merry men will have to fight hard to stay alive, and there will be a woman ready for seduction. Or will it be the other way around.
Sorryyy
The Iberian peninsula’s rich history of the Reconquista adds a rich context to this well told story. A good book to become acquainted with Lt. Richard Sharpe, a seasoned former ranker promoted in the field. This book, set in the initial withdrawal under Moore, focuses on Spanish resistance and Lt Sharpe’s uneasy transition from an initial assignment as a quartermaster attached to the 95th Rifles to, in the harrowing withdrawal, detached combat command as an officer.
