Sharpes Tiger

Author:

Availability: In Stock

The prequel to the series, describing Sharpe\'s experiences in India, repackaged to tie in with the fantastic new Sharpe look. Throughout the series, there are references to Sharpe\'s early soldiering life in India. With the same meticulous research and attention to detail that is found in the Peninsular War books, Bernard Cornwell has sumptuously recreated the 1799 campaign against Seringapatam which made the British masters of southern India, a campaign that pitted brutalized soldiers against an ancient and splendid civilization. Sharpe, the rest of his battalion and rising star of the general staff Arthur Wellesley, are about to embark upon the siege of the island citadel of the Tippoo of Mysore, Seringapatam. The British must remove this potentate from his Tiger Throne, but he has gone to great lengths to defend his city from attack. When a senior British officer is captured by the Tippoo\'s forces, Sharpe is offered a chance to attempt a rescue and infiltrate the Tippoo\'s forces. Sharpe needs no invitation to get away from the tyrannical Sergeant Hakeswill, but once inside the dangerous world of the Tippoo he realises he will need all his wits just to stay alive, let alone save the British army from catastrophe. Set against the background of dazzling wealth, ruinous poverty, gorgeous palaces, sudden cruelty and pitiless battles, \'Sharpe\'s Tiger\' is his greatest adventure yet.
