Sharpe’s Trafalgar is a notable book in the popular Sharpe series written by English author Bernard Cornwell. These books were turned into a television series for ITV that ran from 1993-1997 starring actor Sean Bean as the leading character Richard Sharpe. Cornwell revels in stories filled to the brim with romance and adventure, often set with a dark wartime backdrop. His flair for telling historical tales is unmatched and in no other stories is this more evident that in the Sharpe novels.
Sharpe’s Trafalgar is a maritime adventure set back in 1805 that sees heroic character Richard Sharpe at the centre of one of the most historical significant battles ever fought at sea. It is a dangerous nautical escapade and Cornwell successfully ensures Sharpe’s presence at Cape Trafalgar is highly plausible. A love affair, a battle and some head-to-heads with old and new enemies see Sharpe embroiled in a seafaring tale during which he meets many characters including heroes, scoundrels and rogues.
