Hi Mr Cornwell I have been a huge fan of your books for many years, they even prompted me to drive all the way to the Royal Armouries at Leeds just to see Wellington's sword. I love the British army's role in the whole Napoleonic era, however another period of history that has always been of great interest is the battle at Rourkes drift. Do you have any plans to release a book concerning this? Maybe in a bizare quirk of fate, Sharpe's son could have enlisted and be fighting there? Greg Sewell
I don't have any such plans at the moment, and I'm not really thinking about it either - I don't much like the later 19th Century - a daft prejudice, I know, but there it is.
