Captain Richard Sharpe commits a political blunder and may be court-martialed. Wellington makes a tactical blunder, however, and Sharpe helps win a victory in spite of it. Sharpe believes a soldier is remembered only for his last battle, and this one saves his career. William Gaminara is a remarkable narrator. Cornwell's novel relies more on description than conversation, and Gaminara manages it very well. He evokes the period, the characters, the raging conflict and engages the listener's full attention. In that era war involved personal suffering and bravery; through Gaminara's voice we feel the humor, comradeship and horror of Sharpe's campaign.
