Book Description

The first printing of a Special Limited Edition numbering only 1,000 copies published for W H Smith to be given away by them as a promotional initiative with each copy of Sharpe’s Fortress. This IS NOT the later edition re-published by the Sharpe Appreciation Society in 2003. Plot: "Wellington's armies had won their victories, defeated the French at Salamanca and begun their push north. But Sharpe and his Light Company had been detailed to guard a Major Tubbs investigating a hoard of captured muskets in a quiet backwater fort by a river crossing. It all appeared beautiful and peaceful in the Spanish sun, but that was before Sergeant Harper discovered the wine, old enemies appeared on the hills and Sharpe found himself on the wrong side of the bridge. Sharpe's skill and ingenuity are truly tested in this new adventure." Front cover illustrations by David Scutt. A scarce edition.
