Bedside Desk: The Napoleonic wars, a cracking good story and a swashbuckling anti-hero


“On my bedside desk is the novel, ‘Sharpe’s Sword’ by Bernard Cornwell. The principle character, Richard Sharpe, is an anti-hero. The ebook is ready within the time of wars between Napoleon and England and takes place throughout a selected battle. I additionally favored the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western ‘For a Few {Dollars} Extra’ and Daniel Craig’s Bond motion pictures. Such males don’t sweat the small stuff. There’s extra than simply the one Sharpe novel — you may also learn ‘Sharpe’s Eagle,’ ‘Sharpe’s Firm,’ and so forth.

“I used to be within the US Coast Guard for six years and revel in studying historic journey. I’ve learn all of the Sharpe novels. Every ends in a military promotion for Sharpe. He’s a fighter and a pacesetter on the battlefield, and, my favourite factor about him, an anti-hero. Males like this have a code of honor. They assist the weak and shoot the dangerous. The subsequent novel I learn may have ‘Spenser’ as the principle character. It’s so unhappy that Spenser creator Robert B. Parker handed away. Spencer is an articulate anti-hero. So there!” — EDWARD M. TURNER, Biddeford
