More About the Author

Bernard Cornwell was born in London in 1944 - a 'warbaby' - whose father was a Canadian airman and mother in Britain's Women's Auxiliary Air Force. He was adopted by a family in Essex who belonged to a religious sect called the Peculiar People (and they were), but escaped to London University and, after a stint as a teacher, he joined BBC Television where he worked for the next 10 years. He began as a researcher on the Nationwide programme and ended as Head of Current Affairs Television for the BBC in Northern Ireland. It was while working in Belfast that he met Judy, a visiting American, and fell in love. Judy was unable to move to Britain for family reasons so Bernard went to the States where he was refused a Green Card. He decided to earn a living by writing, a job that did not need a permit from the US government - and for some years he had been wanting to write the adventures of a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars - and so the Sharpe series was born. Bernard and Judy married in 1980, are still married, still live in the States and he is still writing Sharpe.

Cornwell brings history to life with these well written, carefully researched novels. I first came to appreciate this author years ago when I read some of his books about sailing adventures. They were page turners that also immersed me in the joys of sailing.

He manages history the same way. I learned a good deal about the life and times of the Napoleonic era, while at the same time being entertained by a great story. His character development is great, and he gives insight into the mind set of people of that time period.

I would recommend these books to anyone interested in history. Someone who just wants to read an exciting adventure will also enjoy these books, and maybe learn a little history just by accident!

This is a good read. An historical adventure with a flawed, but sympathetic hero who earns the respect and loyalty of his men and the love of almost every woman he meets. Yep, I fell for him!

I'd have given Sharpe 5 stars, but nobody's perfect! This is not for the romance reader wanting a happy ending. Sharpe's women are either doomed or evil and don't take up much space in the books.

Anyone who likes to travel back in history with a fictional companion, and doesn't mind a few compromises with truth for the sake of the story (always admitted to by the author in the very interesting notes at the end of the book), will like the Sharpe books... providing they're not squeamish!
