The year is , and Richard Sharpe is back in England, where his career seems to have come to a dead end, despite his heroics in Britain's recent victory at Trafalgar. Loveless, destitute, and relegated to the menial tasks of quartermaster, Sharpe roams the streets of London, pondering a bleak future away from the army. Sharpe's Prey: Denmark I was unaware that England attacked Denmark during the Napoleonic wars. I found this story most fascinating. The description of life in Denmark at the time made me feel as if I was there. Cornwell is a master of battle scenes and the destruction of the City was very realistic.

About the Sharpe Books. I began writing Sharpe in and he’s still going strong. I never thought there would be this many books – I imagined there might be ten or eleven – but then along came Sean Bean and the television programmes and I virtually began a whole new Sharpe .   ‎Richard Sharpe is sent to Copenhagen to deliver a bribe to stop the Danes handing over possession of their battle fleet to the French. It seems very easy. But nothing is easy in a Europe stirred by French ambitions. The Danes possess a battle fleet that could replace every ship the French /5(34).
