Sharpe's Waterloo Summary

Sharpe's Waterloo: The Waterloo Campaign, 15-18 June, 1815 (The Sharpe Series, Book 20) by Bernard Cornwell

Lieutenant-Colonel Sharpe, sidelined on the Royal staff, magnificently siezes command at the final moment of the great victory.

It is 1815. Sharpe is serving on the personal staff of the Prince of Orange, who refuses to listen to Sharpe's reports of an enormous army, led by Napoleon, marching towards them.

The Battle of Waterloo commences and it seems as if Sharpe must stand by and watch the grandest scale of military folly. But at the height of battle, as victory seems impossible, Sharpe takes command and the most hard-fought and bloody battle of his career becomes his most magnificent triumph.

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.

'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
