Talavera, Spain, 1809. Sharpe faces Napoleon’s armies at Talavera. His ferocity and strategic genius are, of course, hindered by weak and ineffectual allies (the Spanish, who flee in terror at their own musket volley, and the requisite enemies on his own side: in this book, the fatuous Colonel Sir Henry Simmerson, and his effete, woman-beating nephew). But they are no match for Sharpe, of course, who gets the girl, kills his enemies, loses the girl, and wins heaps of awards. Yes, it’s all a bit formulaic.
