I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you, as a loyal Bernard Cornwell fan especially the Sharpe series I have to congratulate you. Unusually compared to many 'action/adventure' writers your books are not only good to read but inspiring as well. I literally knew nothing about the peninsular war before reading them and yet now I could probably claim to be quite knowledgeable on the subject. That is entirely your fault you realise as Sharpe totally inspired me to read some of the many other books on the subject. The big question of course is where to set the next one? My suggestion would be Albuera, I'll leave it up to you how Sharpe and Harper could get some 200km south of Fuentes de Oñoro in 10 days to be on time but if you could do it it would be great. Albuera was such a violent, moody and yet still such a dramatic battle that it's a shame Sharpes not been there before& Andy Hunt
You're right - Albuhera would be great, but the next Sharpe book will almost certainly be Barossa - so Albuhera might be the one after, or might not!
