Bernard Cornwell Discusses The Fort, His Latest Historical Novel

Bernard Cornwell, the author of the terrific Richard Sharpe series, discusses his new historical novel, The Fort, with Sarah Crown from the British newspaper The Guardian.

Cornwell (seen in the above photo) tells how he learned about a "forgotten story" from the American War of Independence, and how he came to debunk legendary hero Paul Revere.

  1. I like the fascinating clash between a superpower and a nation that the novel has.

  2. Kaye,

    So do I.

    I like Mr. Cornwell's historical research and his storytelling skills. I enjoy his novels.
