9780006510307: Sharpe's Triumph (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series #2)

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. As millions of readers came to know Bernard Cornwell's brilliant creation Richard Sharpe as he fought his way through the Peninsular War, so they discovered that Sharpe had started his soldiering career in India. In 1997, Sharpe's Tiger finally lifted the veil on this exciting early life and became the biggest-selling Sharpe novel of all. Now, the year is 1803 and young Sergeant Richard Sharpe is still in India where, following his successes in Sharpe's Tiger, he is on the trail of a renegade East India Company officer. The pursuit takes him through the vicious siege of Ahmednuggur to the bloody battlefield of Assaye where the future Duke of Wellington won what he considered to be his greatest victory, with Richard Sharpe, naturally, at his side. Full of the action and drama and atmosphere that have made this series so immensely popular with both readers and television viewers, Sharpe's Triumph will be one of the most eagerly awaited novels of the year.

From the Back Cover:

Sergeant Richard Sharpe is the sole survivor of a murderous attack led by Major William Dodd, a cold-blooded English turncoat fighting for the mercenary forces of the Mahratta confederation. Determined to avenge the deaths of his comrades, Sharpe pursues the traitor deep into the heart of enemy territory, joining the army of Sir Arthur Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington, in the village of Assaye. For Sharpe will have his satisfaction as, outmanned and outgunned, he and Wellesley's men take on the ruthless Mahratta horde, charging courageously into the white heat of one of the greatest battles of its century.

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."

Richard Sharpe—soldier, hero, rogue—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.
