    Immensely readable and entertaining context to the first few Sharpe novels I've read most of Sharpe and this certainly made me want to revisit them However that isn't the real value whether you are well versed in the Napoleonic era and reading Sharpe for fun or reading Sharpe for fun and confused about the setting; this book is filled with illuminating background stories and details in a cleverly integrated way This also shows what a superb job Bernard Cornwell did in fixing Sharpe into a realistic history A little better proof reading might have fixed the odd small error which is unfortunate in such an excellent book

    This book works as an useful companion to the first five Sharpe novels but also as a truly excellent and detailed guide to British army and navy Sharpe also participated to the Battle of TrafalgarThis was an excellent book and I enjoyed it a lot

    Get your magnifying glasses out maps and charts are in very fine print But for those like myself that love maps charts and military facts this book is for you I am going to loan it out but will want its return when I set out to reread the Sharpe series This follows Sharpe historically from birth through the battle for Copenhagen

    As a fan of the Sharpe novels I found this book fascinating The historical realities are laid out well and cross referred to Bernard Cornwells' books Apart from being a fine book in its own right this illustrates just how well Cornwell has written his fictional hero into historyIllustrations and maps are excellent and the writing is clear Well worth a read

    I had higher hopes for this tale of two slaves who escape their owner and join Benjamin Franklin extended household The introduction of super powers or that the afro centrism that is introduced to the characters does not ring true to my reading

    Obviously not novels the Sharpe Companion books are interesting reading for anyone with a passing interest in the napoleonic wars They're probably not going to help you pass any history degree but are great for for a light diversion

    This book helped feed my obsession for all things Sharpe related It is great to further explain the minutia of soldiering as well as interesting facts about everyday life during this time frame Lots of maps and charts and details I just wish the book continued with The Later Years

    I love this series and so when I stumbled upon the historical companion to the books I jumped to read it I enjoyed learning some of the historical truths of the series and the minor trivia related to terms and phrases developed because of life back then

    A fantastic resource for reading Cornwell's Sharpe novels It would have been great if they'd run colored plates for the illustrations
