Description

The battle when it came was well laid out by Cornwell and easy to follow the tactics and flow, and was full of his trademark grittiness that immersed me as if I was there. Hornblower is one of the greatest naval adventurers in literature and he is back with heroic battles, stoic command and illicit liaisons in a stunning new four-book Folio set that includes reproductions of Forester’s original maps. Crowbarring him in actually makes the main plot less clear – I have no idea what really developed from it. This is definitely for the Sharpe fan - if you've read the others, you have to read this one as well.

Cornwell's strict Protestant upbringing informed the background of A Crowning Mercy, which took place during the English Civil War.His other fiction titles include The Starbuck Chronicles (1993–6), The Warlord Chronicles (1995–7), The Grail Quest Series (2000–12), The Last Kingdom books (2004– ), Azincourt (2008) and Fools and Mortals (2017). Yes, the old favourites were back, Teresa, Hogan, Dan and Harris, but we’ve all been here before and I’m sure we were all wanted a new and exciting adventure, alas, it’s a rehash of old. Lastly, the historical narrative in play for this one too is very lean, covering just weeks in the peninsular war and rounded out with a half-baked antagonist.

We have to fight them off ourselves,’ he said, and wondered if he would have done better to have stayed in the church. Douglas Smith provides rousing scratchboard images for the first illustrated editions of Bernard Cornwell’s enormously popular historical adventures.Things pretty much go according to plan, and this brings the battle to Almaraz and the French-occupied fortresses on each of the banks of the Tagus River. There were no atmospheric descriptions of landscapes or backdrops or people, just very tell-tell-tell sequences and scenes. Wading waist-deep in shit to scrape mineral deposits off the walls, Still, they are French, so they possibly don't notice.
