Er lag een geheimzinnig pakje met mijn naam erop, waaruit zomaar drie boeken van mijn whishlist kwamen. Dank je wel, wat ontzettend attent! Ik ben er blij mee!

From the back;
Newly promoted, Major Richard Sharpe leads his small force into the biting cold of the winter mountains. His task is to rescue a group of well-born women held hostage by a rabble of deserters. And one of the renegades is Sergeant Hakeswill, Sharpe's most implacable enemy.
But the rescue is the least of Sharpe's problems. He must face a far greater threat. With only the support of his own company and the new Rocket Troop — the last word in military incompetence — to back his gamble, Sharpe cannot afford even to recognize the prospect of defeat. For to surrender — or to fail — would mean the end of the war for the Allied armies…

I've read that many people find this one of the best Sharpe novels, though it's been a while since I read one since currently I'm hooked on Cornwell's new series. This is one of the early Sharpe novels, and it shows because the writing is less fluent than I became used to. Also this is one of the novels which has been adapted for the Sharpe tv series, which I couldn't help to compare it with.
It's of course another exciting read; you can leave that to Bernard Cornwell! His hero Sharpe fights a bitter, personal war in this one. I hated the other dead in this novel...

Gefeliciteerd, je hebt dit boek gevangen! Ik hoop dat je ervan zult genieten.
Wil je, als je het uit hebt, hier vertellen wat je ervan vond? Daarna zou het leuk zijn als je het verder laat reizen. Je kan het aan een kennis geven om te lezen of zomaar in het wild ergens achterlaten zodat iemand anders het kan vinden, bijvoorbeeld in een restaurant, school, buiten, of ergens anders waarvan jij denkt dat er mensen komen die dit boek zouden willen lezen.
Het zou nog leuker zijn als je lid wordt van BookCrossing. Dat is gratis en veilig, je emailadres wordt niet doorgegeven. Je kunt dan zelf zien waar het boek na jou naar toe gaat. Je kan ook andere boeken registeren en loslaten, kijk maar eens op of klink links in de index van deze site. Als je lid wordt, zou ik het leuk vinden als je mij, eowyn-unquendor, als verwijzer ("referrer") opgeeft.
