Sharpe's Company: Richard Sharpe and the Siege of Badajoz, January to April 1812
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: May 2011
Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes
It is January 1812. Looming on the border of Portugal and Spain is the fortress of Badajoz. To lead an assault on its thick, sheer walls and battlements is suicide, yet this is Richard Sharpe's mission. Inside the walls are his wife and daughter, and only he can save them.
Outside is the misshapen, vengeance-crazed Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill, a man determined to kill Sharpe. Sharpe knows that in the heat of battle, only the cold steel of his battered sword and the ruthless bloodlust of a soldier at war will protect him from the danger of both sides.
