9780060932305: Sharpe's Tiger (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series #1)

From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, now available in paperback—the world-renowned Sharpe’s Rifles series comes to a new generation of readers, beginning with this first exciting adventure. Bestselling historical novelist Bernard Cornwell chronicles the rise of Richard Sharpe, a Private in His Majesty’s Army at the siege of Seringapatam.

“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” (The Economist), 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. Sharpe’s Tiger introduces readers to Sharpe, a private in His Majesty’s Army at the siege of Seringapatam in India in September 1803, as the fearless but inexperienced young soldier undertakes an essential undercover mission that places him on the wrong side of the conflict when the British assault on the city begins. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: “If only all history lessons could be as vibrant.”

From the Back Cover:

"It was a bloody awful shot," Sharpe said.
"My mother could lay a gun better than that."
"I didn't think you had a mother," Private Garrard said.
"Everyone's got a mother, Tom."
"Not Sergeant Hakeswill," Garrard said, then spat a mix of dust
and spittle. . . . "Hakeswill was spawned of the devil."

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.
