Sharpes Regiment (Sharpe, #17) A Corrupt Political Plot Threatens To Put An End To The South Essex Regiment And The Life Of Major Richard Sharpe When He Investigates And Discovers An Illegal Recruiting Ring Selling Soldiers Like Cattle To Other Divisions. This is not exactly a prototypical Sharpe novel in that there is no pitched battle to be had against Napoleon s forces Instead, Major Richard Sharpe is back on English soil and his enemy is the British army itself The wheres and the whos matter little in a Bernard Cornwell book, because you re going to get pretty much the same thing every time, and if you like love it once, you ll like love it again and again Cornwell knows his winning formula inside and out He excels at action sequences He This is not exactly a prototypical Sharpe novel in that there is no pitched battle to be had against Napoleon s forces Instead, Major Richard Sharpe is back on English soil and his enemy is the British army itself The wheres and the whos matter little in a Bernard Cornwell book, because you re going to get pretty much the same thing every time, and if you like love it once, you ll

I took a break from thIs series, and when I went back to this one, I realized how much I love Richard Sharpe Not the battle action heavy book of past ones, but thick with intrigue and history I enjoyed.

A nice plot change up in the series with Sharpe battling corrupt British aristocrats rather than the French Of course there s a woman or two and a few other predictable elements, but we re getting close to Waterloo and I will keep reading. Raw, intense, illuminating. Sharpe s Regiment could be subtitled Sharpe versus the London Bureaucracy Most Sharpe books follow a familiar formula, where Sharpe must overcome a plot by the French or French supporters that will involve a battle or two Along the way Sharpe will best a superior officer who underestimates him because he s not a gentlemen and have sex with a woman that all the other officers lust after and would otherwise seem out of Sharpe s social strata Up until this point, the most that formula has diverg Sharpe s Regiment could be subtitled Sharpe versus the London Bureaucracy Most Sharpe books follow a familiar formula, where Sharpe must overcome a plot by the French or French supporters that will involve a battle or two Along the way Sharpe will best a superior officer who underestimates him because he s not a gentlemen and have sex with a woman that all the other officers lust after and would otherwise seem out of Sharpe s social
