Sharpe’s Enemy: Richard Sharpe and the Defence of Portugal, Christmas 1812 is the fifteenth historical novel in the Richard Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell, first published in 1984. The story is set in 1812 during the Napoleonic Wars.
In the winter of 1812 a group of deserters from all the armies of the Peninsular War – French, British, Spanish and Portuguese – descends on the isolated hamlet of Adrados, on the Spanish-Portuguese border, led by Obadiah Hakeswill, the antagonist of Sharpe’s Company, and Pot-au-Feu aka Sergeant Deron, as Marshal Soult’s cook. They seize a number of women on pilgrimage to a convent in the village, including Josefina Lacosta who is travelling as “Lady Farthingdale”, and Madame Dubreton, the English-born wife of a French colonel of cavalry.SKU: n/a
