CORNWELL, Bernard. Sharpe's Regiment : Richard Sharpe and the Invasion of France, June to November 1813. London : Collins, 1986. First UK Printing. Pp. [1]-301,(3). 8vo, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Bernard Cornwell, OBE (b. February 23, 1944, London). "Major Sharpe and his men were in mortal danger -- but for once the threat did not come from the French. The Battalion's ranks were seriously depleted and the supply of new recruits from England seemed to have dried up. Unless the South Essex could bring reinforcements from the Second Battalion back in England, the whole regiment would be disbanded and the troops scattered throughout the British army. But Richard Sharpe is determined not to allow his regiment to die, not to let his men be victims of the bureaucrats who run the army from the remote comfort of London. His return to England, accompanied by Sergeant Harper, puts him more danger than he has ever faced at the hands of the enemy. First Major Sharpe is lauded as a hero in London. Then he finds that the men he has come to collect have vanished. To find the missing soldiers, Major Sharpe and Sergeant Harper themselves join the British army, disguised as the newest, rawest recruits. The conspiracy of corruption and deceit they find reaches from East Anglia to Whitehall. The well-bred, high-ranking traitors they are trying to uncover make the French seem easy enemies; any one of the conspirators could destroy Sharpe's whole career with a word, or stroke of thepen. To save his regiment, Sharpe is forced into the most desperate gamble of his life -- and not even the influence of the Prince Regent may be enou gh to save him." - from the dj.
