You are forgetting the latest one that just came out a few weeks ago. Sharp's Command.

Yes, rather than this I wish he would finish the Starbuck American Civil War books. But my guess is there is more money in Sharpe.

Yes, I read Sharpe's Command. It was out last year. Not one of the author's best, in my opinion. But I'm still looking forward to Sharpe's Storm, especially as there are virtually no other Napoleonic themed novels being published, as far as I am aware anyway.

Gazzola,

Have you read Adrian Goldsworthy, Martin McDowell, Robert McLaren, Peter Youds, or Dominic Fielder?

All good series. Goldsworthy appears to have given up, though. McDowell recently did his take on the 100 Days and after. Fielder and McLaren are self-published (I think) through Amazon and are both set in the French Revolutionary Wars.

Yes I agree. I think Mrs Cornwall wanted a new kitchen or something and that was a quick way to pay for it.

Sharpe's command came out here in the US only a couple of months ago. I wish he would return to Starbuck and the US Civil War series he started.

I am only up to 1811 or so, haven't picked up the next in a long time

I guess I should have said 'virtually no other Napoleonic themed novels, apart from Goldsworthy, MacDowell, Youds, Fielder' LOL

I have tried some of them but, as much as I tried, I could just not get into them or find myself wanting to read more. I'm also a bit wary of self-publishing titles and authors. However, I was not aware of the Rob Maclaren's series, so I will definitely give them a go. Thanks for the heads up.

Just spotted a paperback copy of the first book in MacDowell's Napoleonic series of novels and Amazon have it marked down as £109.00 GBP for a paperback! LOL

Might also reconsider looking at Fielder's Napoleonic series at some point in the future. If I ever manage to reduce my unread mountain of titles.

Might also consider retrying Goldsworthy's series as well, providing I can find the time to actually read them. I think at the time I had overdone the Peninsular actions so wanted something different. But I'm falling into Peninsular mode again now, so will probably give them a go. Anyway, his Napoleonic novels, along with Maclaren and MacDowell's books, are on my to-buy list.
