Sharpe’s Waterloo (1990)
The story of the battle – and Sharpe’s part in it. For some reason this was published in the US as, simply, Waterloo. There’s almost no plot in this book because there doesn’t need to be (though Sharpe does have to settle accounts with the man who poached his second wife). The story of the battle is so dramatic, so unlikely and so full of suspense that fiction is scarcely needed. Nevertheless the book does suggest that perhaps it was not the enemy who shot the Prince of Orange. It also made a very good video.
