Sharpe's Triumph Summary


Sharpe's Triumph by Bernard Cornwell

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.
