Perhaps I'll pen a proper review someday, but were I to do so now it would be nothing but expletives and spoilers. ( )

Now a Major, Sharpe in the mountains battling against deserters and the French. Really good stuff... ( )

I found this Sharpe adventure with a rescue attempt, a Christmas challenge and exciting fighting an engaging read that kept me turning pages. ( )

Perhaps my favourite Sharpe, with a well described but quite fictional main battle piece. It's a bit redolent of the war-games table, but a fine fight. Obadiah Hawkeswill, gotta love ya! ( )

This was a pretty good book in that you see Sharpe thinking outside of the box in his new rank as Major. Obadia is there but I really don't think he added much to the story; I think the best story with Obadia was in Sharpe's Tiger which of course while the first of the series was written later. Obadia had an almost comical beginning and an ending which I suppose is satisfying on one level but sad on another...won't spoil things for you. I like the addition of new characters such as "Sweet William" ( )

Quotations
...this system is yet in its infancy
...much has been accomplished in a short time and there is every reason to believe that the accuracy of the Rocket may be actually brought upon a par with that of other artillery ammunition for all the important purposes of field service.
