Richard Sharpe and the French Invasion of Galicia, January, 1809Book - 2011
The story takes place during the British retreat from Spain in 1809. French victory seems certain. Lieutenant Richard Sharpe, newly promoted from the ranks, is struggling to earn the respect of his fellow officers and the men he commands. When he is separated from his unit, he seizes the chance to command a rag tag company of riflemen, who have little love for their new leader, through enemy territory back to the British lines. On top of these worries, Spanish partisans insist that the British escort them to a remote village where they believe victory over the French is possible.
