9780061012709: Sharpe's Triumph: Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Assaye, September 1803 (Sharpe's Adventures)

The latest of Cornwell’s perennially popular Sharpe adventures, returning, like Sharpe’s Tiger, to India, and culminating with the battle at Assaye which Wellington considered his greatest victory. Repackaged in the fantastic new Sharpe look.

Sergeant Richard Sharpe witnesses a murderous act of treachery by an English officer who has defected from the East India Company to join the Mahratta Confederation. In the hunt for the renegade Englishman, Sharpe penetrates deep into enemy territory where he is followed relentlessly by his worst enemy, Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill.

The paths of treachery all lead to the small villiage of Assaye where Sir Arthur Wellesley, with a diminished British army, faces the Mahratta horde. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wellesley plunges his men into the white heat of battle. A battle that will make his reputation, and perhaps Sharpe’s too.

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.

Review:

‘Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.' Sunday Telegraph

'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.' Daily Mail

'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.' Observer

‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.’ George R.R. Martin
