SHARPEâ?™S FORTRESS Richard Sharpe and the Siege of Gawilghur, December 1803 BERNARD CORNWELL. This novel is a work of fiction.

Sharpe’s fortress : Richard Sharpe and the Siege of Gawilghur, December 1803. Richard Sharpe wanted to be a good officer. He truly did. He wanted it above all other things, but somehow it was just too difficult, like trying to light a tinderbox in a rain-filled wind. Either the men disliked him, or they ignored him, or they were overfamiliar and he was unsure how to cope with any of the three attitudes, while the battalion’s other officers plain disapproved of him. You can put a racing saddle on a carthorse, Captain Urquhart had said one night in the ragged tent which passed for the officers’ mess, but that don’t make the beast quick.

  • I wish I had read the Sharpe series in order but alas I have managed to jump all over the place as I obtained the books. This is the last book that takes place in India and is the first book that Sharpe is an officer albeit as a lowly Ensign. It is 1803 and Sharpe is with Sir Arthur Wellesley’s army closing in on the retreating Mahrattas in western India. The Mahrattas Army has entered the Impenetrable fortress Gawilghur that raises above the Deccan plains. Sharpe is having nothing but problems, his new regiment does not want a maverick Ensign, he is reassigned to the supply train where he finds Sergeant Hakiswill and friends stealing supplies and selling them to the Indian merchants. As you can imagine this leads Sharpe into danger and unwanted trouble, but he is mainly focus on getting into the fortress and killing Dodd the English traitor we encounter in the last book “Sharpe’s Triumph”. Sir Arthur set up to lay siege to the fortress as Sharpe also is seeking a way into the fortress. Cornwell is a master of the battle scene and he is at his best with the siege of Gawilghur. This book also solved my problem from later books in Portugal as to how Sharpe got his telescope from Sir Arthur. At the end of the book Sharpe is being sent to England to join the newly formed rifles in their green jackets. This was one of the books I had a hard time finding but finely got it in e-book format to play on my kindle app on my Ipad. I have greatly enjoyed the Sharpe series and it has frequently sent to off to the encyclopedia to look up information. I really enjoy the author’s note at the end of the book when Cornwell explains where he inserted Sharpe into the real history of the siege of Gawilghur.

  • A great story that was hard to put down. Disappointingly, the Kindle edition is marred with punctuation mistakes and typos, interfering with the pace and comprehension of the story though thankfully not obscuring it. Read the book and enjoy, but you may occasionally grind your teeth about Amazon's abandonment of its responsibilities.

  • The story is terrific, right up to expectations for Cornwell's Sharpe series. The action is constant, and the characters and plot do not disappoint. A 5-star novel.
    The editing of the ebook is very poor. Random quotation marks, misplaced commas and question marks, and misread or misprinted words (i.e. "die" where "the" is the clear choice, or "men" for "then") are a stumbling mess to the careful reader. Amazon really should treat the material with better attention to detail. If they're relying on Spellcheck, they'd be much better off with a good live human copyeditor. I take off at least one rating point whenever I run into this problem.

  • You know what you're getting with this series. Entertaining and somewhat historically accurate, especially given the context provided by the author's notes. However, I rate this down the scale as a read because the Kindle edition, at least, is riddled with editing errors. One section is especially riddled with repeat errors that a human obviously did not read before release. If a human reviewed this digital content before it was released they should be fired.

  • I agree with an earlier review, that this is a "pattern" or "cookie-cutter" book (my words, not those of the earlier reviewer.) The publisher has, sadly, trended back into not bothering to proofread the scanned Kindle version (surely the actual books cannot have been published with these scores of obvious errors - in one Kindle page the word "the" appeared erroneously as "die" three times, over and over beginning or ending quotation marks appeared in error out of no where in the middle of a sentence, it is truly an unforgivable disappointment.) All that said, I'm hooked on the Richard Sharpe series, and will be ordering the Kindle version of the fourth book in just a moment. The series, itself, is quite a joy, and I really appreciate the author's postscript, where he corrects the historical facts, so that you are privileged to come away not only with a wonderfully entertaining novel, but with an accurate historical education, as well. Kudos to the author for that additional effort and gift.

  • Sorry I didn't pay attention to how it was Narrated, got caught up in the story.. I suppose you could say it was violent, blood and guts, it is war. Romance, affair etc. but not Graphic at all.
    I love historical fiction, read many Tall Ship series and loved them all.. when looking for more, I ran into Sharpe Series and at first I was put off by it being on land.. but it proved to be a good read. And when Trafalgar came along in the series I was thrilled as we were at Sea again! I am a real Historical Fiction buff and I am glad I found his series.
    The author also takes the time to tell you how the boo fits into a battle etc. Fun reads. Thx
