Sharpe's Triumph

Sharpe's Triumph
Bernard Cornwell

Sgt. Richard Sharpe, pursuing a British defector and pursued himself by a vengeful enemy in the ranks, heads inexorably toward the 1803 Battle of Assaye in Wellesley's Indian campaign. Cornwell's vivid historical fiction recalls both Patrick O'Brian and Shelby Foote.
