About the Sharpe Books | Bernard CornwellI never thought there would be this many books — I imagined there might be ten or eleven — but then along came Sean Bean and the television programmes and I virtually began a whole new Sharpe series. It was also about that time that the Sharpe Appreciation Society was founded. I am still writing Sharpe books and, as each one is finished, I shall add it to the list on this website. This list is in the historical order of the stories, not in the order in which the books were written — except the first two titles which are the short story books i. All of the books are available, as are videos and DVDs of the fourteen television programmes and the CD of the Sharpe series music listed on the Suggestions for Further Reading page. You can follow the links to either Amazon.

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.
Bernard Cornwell's books about the adventures of British soldier Richard Sharpe during the Napoleonic Wars have been enjoyed by millions, mixing — as they do — a combination of action, combat, and historical research. However, readers can have difficulty putting the many volumes into chronological order, especially as the author has written many prequels and sequels. The following is the correct 'historical' order, although they all stand alone. As you'll see by scanning below, the Sharpe series now begins with adventures in India, before moving on to the Napoleonic setting that made Cornwell's name; there's also a post-Napoleonic book at the end. All of which begs the question, where is it recommended you start? If you intend to read the whole series, then starting with Sharpe's Tiger is a good idea because you can then go through in order as Sharpe grows.
