9780002250115: The Sharpe Series (1) - Sharpe's Tiger: The Siege of Seringapatam, 1799

The prequel to the series, describing Sharpe’s experiences in India.

When a senior British officer is captured by the Tippoo of Mysore’s forces, Sharpe is offered a chance to attempt a rescue, which in turn offers an escape from the tyrannical Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill.

But in fleeing Hakeswill, Sharpe enters the exotic and dangerous world of the Tippoo. An adventure that will require all of his wits just to stay alive, let alone save the British army from catastrophe.

Soldier, hero, rogue – Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.

“What makes these books such a successful formula is the blend of action, well-researched historical setting, colourful characterization and a juicy sub-plot”
