Sharpe's Escape: Richard Sharpe and the Bussaco Campaign 1810 by Bernard Cornwell (£11.50)Publisher: London: HarperCollinsPublishers — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120133]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps;

From the cover: “It is 1810 and the French are making yet another attempt to invade Portugal. Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by Wellington’s orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe. But Sharpe is in trouble. His job as Captain of the Light Company is under threat and he has made a new enemy, a Portuguese criminal known as Ferragus. Sharpe, discarded by his regiment, wages a private war against Ferragus — a war fought through the burning, pillaged streets of Coimbra, Portugal’s ancient university city.

Sharpe’s enemies are numerous but on his side he has Sergeant Patrick Harper, the Portuguese officer Jorge Vincent and a prickly English governess, whose first aim is to clean up Sharpe’s language.

Sharpe’s Escape begins on the great, gaunt ridge of Bussaco where a joint British and Portuguese army meets the overwhelming strength of Marshall Massena’s crack troops. It finishes at Torres Vedras where the French hopes of occupying Portugal quickly die. This is a classic Sharpe novel, with Richard Sharpe in his finest form reunited with Patrick Harper, and facing enemies on every side.”

Moore Of Corunna by Roger Parkinson (£10.50)Publisher: Milton: Purnell Book Services — 1976Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Pages unevenly tanned, mostly at the head of the leaves. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps [5];

From the cover: “Of all British generals who claim the admiration of future generations, Sir John Moore perhaps most truly embodies the ideal of the perfect leader. His courage, tactical brilliance, decisiveness, incorruptibility, and gift for firing the spirits of his men in battle we re combined with a conscientious regard for the authority of his government at home — even when its dictates were at odds with his own sense of the military realities.

Roger Parkinson portrays, with a vitality that matches his subject, Moore’s extraordinary career: from the first taste of action against the rebel in America to his early personal triumphs against the French in Corsica, Holland and Egypt. Then came the clouds of controversy; Moore’s involvement in uneasy and dangerous relationships with local authorities in Corsica, Sicily and Sweden brought criticism as well as fame, and foreshadowed the tragic role he would play in the Peninsular War. The desperate retreat to Corunna and the last heroic stand against Napoleon’s armies are movingly and dramatically told. Dominating the tumult of events and intrigues is the character of a man in whom ‘exertions amongst dangers and difficulties is preferred to idleness’, whose private feelings were subordinated to loyalty to his country and the passionate love of his profession; a restrained eighteenth century gentleman who gave a captured French commander his own sword to make him feel more comfortable, and who continued to ask as the last life ebbed from his body, ‘Are the French beaten?’”

The Age of Nelson by G. J. Marcus (£10.50)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0043590063]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed at the spine ends with a short, open, tear to the foot of of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Previous owners' inscription to the front pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Volume II in the series. From the cover: “The hard-fought struggle between Great Britain and France for maritime, commercial, and colonial supremacy, which had continued with only a few brief intermissions since the last two decades of the seventeenth century, culminated in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, which gave Great Britain the dominion of the seas and established her as the great World Power during the long general peace that followed.

The Great War of 1793-1815 (as it was known to our forebears) is the subject of the present book, the second in the series of G. J. Marcus’s A Naval History of England — of which the first was The Formative Centuries, bringing the narrative down to the year 1793, and the next is to be The Empire of the Ocean, covering the period 1815-1914. This study of what has been called ‘the classic age of British Sea Power’ is fittingly named after the greatest fighting admiral in history, acclaimed by Marian as ‘the embodiment of the Sea Power of Great Britain’.

As well as the famous fleet actions of the war this book also closely examines less familiar topics such as the French expeditions against Ireland, the long-drawn-out war on trade, and the Anglo-American War of 1812. The characters and careers of the leading commanders like Howe, St. Vincent, and Nelson are carefully portrayed, and the author has objectively pictured the Britain of that time. The whole is enriched by reports and descriptions from contemporary witnesses. There are sixteen maps.”

Portugal by Martha De La Cal (£9.50)Publisher: Collins — 1988Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0004109732]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “In spite of its relatively small size, Portugal could be several different countries in one. It has a popular and attractive coast, an undiscovered, sparsely populated hinterland and modern European cities that contrast with the many typically Portuguese and medieval towns. In this comprehensive and practical guide, Martha de la Cal, who has lived and worked in Portugal for many years, gives a real insider’s view of the country and its people.

Contents include

• A fascinating and vivid account of Portugal’s history, art and architecture and also a revealing look at Portugal today.

• The gazetteer covers the whole country in detail and in doing so opens up such previously ignored areas as the beautiful and mountainous north and the historic central region of Estremadura.

• Personal recommendations throughout for hotels, including pousadas, to suit all budgets and for restaurants that serve local and regional specialities and authentic Portuguese food.

• Useful advice on such matters as language, customs and courtesies, transport, shopping and handicrafts, plus many more.”
