about

"The greatest writer of historical adventures today."
Washington Post

Critically acclaimed, perennial New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell (Agincourt, The Fort, the Saxon Tales) makes real history come alive in his breathtaking historical fiction. Praised as "the direct heir to Patrick O''Brian" (Agincourt, The Fort), Cornwell has brilliantly captured the fury, chaos, and excitement of battle as few writers have ever done—perhaps most vividly in his phenomenally popular novels following the illustrious military career of British Army officer Richard Sharpe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In Sharpe''s Fortress, Ensign Sharpe''s adventures in India reach a grand finale at the Siege of Gawilghur during the Maharatta War in December 1803, as Cornwell''s hero uncovers a foul treason and seeks a righteous revenge. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: "If only all history lessons could be as vibrant."

Bernard Cornwell is the author of the acclaimedNew York Timesbestsellers1356andAgincourt; the bestselling Saxon Tales, which includeThe Last Kingdom,The Pale Horseman,Lords of the North,Sword Song,The Burning Land,Death of Kings,The Pagan Lord, and, most recently,The Empty Throne; and the Richard Sharpe novels, among many others.
