I have found myself re-reading the Sharpe series of novels, and remembering how much I enjoy them. I have always been interested in the Napoleonic period of history, and these books wonderfully evoke that period.
As we follow Richard Sharpe through the ranks of the British Army with his faithful companion Sergeant Patrick Harper we get to visit many of the battlefields of Spain and Western Europe.
This series is a great way to travel back in time a enjoy an interesting period in European history. Trust me you will be able to smell the gunpowder and hear the screams of the men fighting for their lives.
In fact I think I'll take a trip back in time myself.
