They weren't written in order. The first book he wrote was Sharpe's Gold. He then went back and did the back story with Rifle's and Eagle and when he got to Devil, he went right back again to Sharpe's days in India with Tiger and then filled in some gaps in the original books.chuckie wrote:Juat finished my first Cornwell book "Sharps fortress", which i believe is the third book set in India. Really enjoyed it and will definitelyread more, but is it better to read them in order?
