Read in December, 2008

The second of the Sharpe books I have read, and it is interesting to note the difference between them. The first, Sharpe's Gold, was the first Cornwell penned (though not the first in chronological sequence). In that one, Sharpe was a competent soldier who didn't really go in for heroics unless he had to. This volume is first chronologically but written much later. And Sharpe, though younger and less experienced, is a classic lantern-jawed hero who is always up for a scrap and who accomplishes deeds James Bond would be proud of. I preferred the pervious incarnation, I think. Still. Gunpowder and cannons. 3/5
