Richard Sharpe returns to England to save the regiment.

Major Sharpe's men are in mortal danger - not from the French, but from the bureaucrats of Whitehall. Unless reinforcements can be brought from England, the regiment will be disbanded.

Determined not to see his regiment die, Sharpe returns to England and uncovers a nest of high-ranking traitors, any of whom could utterly destroy his career with a word. Sharpe is forced into the most desperate gamble of his life - and not even the influence of the Prince Regent may be enough to save him.

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.

I have been working my way through the sharpe series, and this book is my favorite as an story unto itself. Taken as a part of a much greater work it has everything you expect out of a cornwell book. But I found it most intriguing and the most fun to read since I picked up the very first of them.

1813: Major Richard Sharpe And Seargent Patrick Harper go head on once more with Sir Henry Simmerson to stop a crimping scheme that is depriving the South Essex regiment of new recruits for the invasion of France. They also must go head on with a cowardly disciplinarian colonel, a ferocious drill seargent and a scheming peer in Horseguards. Sharpe fakes his own death, survives the swamps of essex survives a court of inquiry and marries Simmerson's niece Jane Gibbons. At the same time making the South Essex the prince of Wales Own. The movie was better yet the book has more detail regarding recruitment and training of soldiers during the Napleonic age. 5 Gold stars as always to Bernard Cornwell.
