Sharpe's command : Richard Sharpe and the bridge at Almaraz, May 1812 / Bernard Cornwell.

Cornwell, Bernard, (author.).


"If any man can do the impossible it's Richard Sharpe...and the impossible is exactly what the formidable Captain Sharpe is asked to do when he's sent on an undercover mission to a small village in the Spanish countryside, far behind enemy lines. For the quiet, remote village, sitting high above the Almaraz bridge, is about to become the center of a battle for the future of Europe. Two French armies march towards the bridge, one from the North and one from the South. If they meet, the British are lost. Only Sharpe's small group of men stand in their way"-- Provided by publisher.
