Bernard Cornwell is the most successful author of historical fiction of recent years. His series of novels featuring rifleman Richard Sharpe set during the Napoleonic Wars were adapted into a long-running and hugely popular television series, and he is the author of several other bestselling historical series – one of which, Uhtred, forms the basis of a major new TV series to be aired in the UK in autumn 2015.
Bernard has also turned his hand to non-fiction, with his account of the Battle of Waterloo also a bestseller. Waterloo was sold worldwide, even in France.
His latest book is Warriors of the Storm, book 9 in the ‘Last Kingdom’ series.
‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive’
– George R. R. Martin
