"The greatest writer of historical adventures today."
Washington Post

From the Back Cover:

"I saw you fight at Seringapatam and I doubt Dodd can stand up to you."
"He won't, sir, he won't," Sharpe said grimly. "And I'll keep you alive." "If God wills it." Sharpe smiled. "Don't they say God helps those who help themselves, sir? We'll do the job, sir."

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Perennial.. Language: English . Brand New Book. From New York Times bestselling author Cornwell Bernard, now available in paperback--in this second installment of the Sharpe s Rifles series-now available in chronological order with gorgeous packaging for a new generation of readers-bestselling historical novelist Bernard Cornwell chronicles Richard Sharpe s battle against a British traitor and a native mercenary army. The greatest writer of historical adventures today. --Washington Post Critically acclaimed, perennial New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell (Agincourt, The Fort, the Saxon Tales) makes real history come alive in his breathtaking historical fiction. Praised as the direct heir to Patrick O Brian (Agincourt, The Fort), Cornwell has brilliantly captured the fury, chaos, and excitement of battle as few writers have ever done--perhaps most vividly in his phenomenally popular novels following the illustrious military career of British Army officer Richard Sharpe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In Sharpe s Triumph, Sharpe s hunt for a traitorous renegade British officer leads the courageous young sergeant straight into the fires and madness of India s Battle of Assaye in September 1803. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: If only all history lessons could be as vibrant. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780060951979
