Sharpe's Honour (Bernard Cornwell)

Posted on Thu 12 April 2007 in Rooties Recent Reading

Another classic Sharpe, I'm amazed by just how many stories Bernard Cornwell has written about one man, in one historically accurate time-line of 20 of his characters years.

Sharpe is politically outmaneuvered early in the story by Major Pierre Ducos which results in Sharpe being hanged..... except we know he survives as he is in the next book. Exactly how he survives and how he proves his innocence of the accused crime is a masterpiece of creative thought and story telling. Another great read.
