Only one man stands between Napoleon’s army and a British defeat—Major Richard Sharpe.

A band of renegades led by Sharpe’s vicious mortal enemy, Obadiah Hakeswill, holds a group of British and French women hostage in a strategic mountain pass. Newly promoted, Major Sharpe is given the task of rescuing them. On the other side of the pass, Napoleon’s Grande Armée seeks to smash through and crush the British army in Portugal. Sharpe has only the support of his own company and the new Rocket Troop—the last word in military incompetence—but he cannot afford to contemplate defeat. To surrender or fail would mean the end of the war for the Allied armies. Outnumbered and attacked from two sides, Sharpe must hold his ground or die in the attempt.

Review Quotes

“The charm of the Sharpe novels is that of meticulously researched stories, books with a passionate correctness as to the details of military organization…and an old-fashioned devotion to heroic conduct.”

Washington Post

“Frederick Davidson performs superbly. The hardness and hauteur of his syllable-precise delivery render well the rigid hierarchies and varied personalities of military life. For fans of the series, Davidson’s readings may be definitive.”


Sharpe’s Enemy is rich in historical detail and narrative surprises, and listeners need know nothing about Sharpe’s background or the Peninsular War to enjoy Frederick Davidson’s fine reading.”
