Extra Content

From Our Editors

Richard Sharpe is once again marching in step with the Light Company of George III's army, this time in India, going into battle against the Tipoo Sultan. It's hot as hades, the new sergeant is a sadist who wants to drum Sharpe out of the brigade, and both of them have their roving eyes on the beautiful half-Indian widow of the late and admired Colonel Bickerstaff in Sharpe’s Tiger.

Editorial Reviews

“Cornwell writes more gripping battle scenes than any other contemporary author.”
