Sharpe's GoldDownloadable Audiobook - 2010 | Unabridged
Only a year after its stunning victory at Talavera in July of 1809, Wellington's Peninsular army-vastly outnumbered, its coffers empty-is on the brink of collapse. The Spanish government has fallen, and the last Spanish armies have been crushed by the French. But Wellington has one hope left: in the dangerous Portuguese hills lies a fortune in gold, enough gold perhaps to turn the Peninsular War around. And he knows of one fighting man capable of stealing it: Captain Richard Sharpe of the South Essex Regiment. This installment in the best-selling historical fiction series takes the charismatic Richard Sharpe all the way from Talavera (Sharpe's Eagle) to the glory of Waterloo, on a secret mission that is unlike any form of warfare Sharpe has known in his long and embattled career as a soldier fighting his way up through the ranks.
