Have you ever considered doing a Captain Chase Spin off from Sharpe ?
There is the fascinating Battle of Lissa in 1811 that most people have never heard off. Or You could send him to North America and fight in the War of 1812. Cockburn Campaigns at Washington and Baltimore are pretty fascinating and I think its such a shame you neglected the War of 1812. Even Patrick O'brien got Aubrey and Maturin to that conflict why not Bernard Cornwell ?
If you've not read it, I recommend reading Andrew Lambert The Challenge on the Naval side of the War of 1812
Do you think you will ever return to your Hundred Year war Series. Nick Hook is waiting and there are many battles post Agincourt to write about. Many British fans of your books and Military History Generally seem to think the War ended with Agincourt when in fact it had really only just begun
What if question, but if Henry the 5th had lived and faced Joan of Arc at The Siege of Orleans who do you think would have won ?
Have you read Jonathon Sumption latest edition Cursed Kings its very good
I have not considered a Joel Chase spin-off, though he’s a character I like. And Sharpe was too busy to get to the war of 1812 – sorry!
I have thought of Nick, done some research and I suspect it’s a strong possibility.
Well, Henry didn’t do too well at Harfleur, even though he won in the end, so I wouldn’t rate his chances against Orleans, with or without Joan.
