Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, second print hardback of SHARPE'S FURY - Richard Sharpe and the Bussaco Campaign, 1810, by Bernard Cornwell and published by Harper Collins Publishers, London, in 2004. Signed by Cornwell on the title page. Jacket illustration featuring a detail from 'The Battle of Chiclana'.

The book is in very good condition (clean dark blue cloth boards and gold lettering on spine which has only light creasing around top edges) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Born in Essex in 1944 Bernard Cornwell was adopted at the age of six weeks by two members of a strict fundamentalist sect called the Peculiar People. He grew up in a household that forbade alcohol, cigarettes, dances, television, conventional medicine and toy guns. Not surprisingly, he developed a fascination for military adventure.

As a teenager he devoured CS Forester's Hornblower novels and tried to enlist three times. Poor eyesight put paid to his dream, instead he went to university to read theology. On graduating, he became a teacher, then joined BBC's Nationwide, working his way up the ladder to become head of current affairs at BBC Northern Ireland, then editor of Thames News. In 1979, his life changed when he fell in love with an American.

'Judy couldn't live here, so I gave up my job and moved to the US. I couldn't get a green card, and for 18 months the only thing I could do was write novels.' The result was his first book about 19th century hero, Richard Sharpe, Sharpe's Eagle.

Today he has 20 Sharpe adventures behind him, plus a series about the American Civil War, the Starbuck novels; an enormously successful trilogy about King Arthur, The Warlord Chronicles; the Hundred Years War set the Grail Quest series; and his current series about King Alfred.

"In the winter of 1811, the war seems lost. All Spain has fallen to the French, except for Cadiz, now the Spanish capital and itself under siege.

In Cadiz, Richard Sharpe discovers more than one enemy. One of them, a baleful priest, finds a weapon to break the British alliance and Sharpe must find ways to defeat him in a sinister war of knife and treachery in the dark alleys of the city.

As a small British force is trapped by a French army, their only hope lies with the outnumbered redcoats who, on a hill beside the sea, refuse to admit defeat. And there, in the sweltering horror of Barrosa, Sharpe finds his old enemy Colonel Vandal once again."

'Cornwell describes military action brilliantly. He evokes all the sights and sounds and smells while managing to describe the fluctuations of the battle with enough vim to keep you in suspense…The Sharpe novels are wonderfully urgent and alive.' - Daily Telegraph

‘Cornwell has maintained a marvellously high standard throughout the series…brilliantly lucid and compellingly exciting.' - Evening Standard

‘Bernard Cornwell knows his man, knows how to harness his qualities to the services of good fiction, and does not miss a trick…Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.' - Sunday Telegraph

'The insubordinate, sarcastic and oversexed Richard Sharpe returns…Cornwell delivers the usual mix of strategy and strength – classic battle scenes and plenty of fisticuffs.' - Daily Mirror
