Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Assaye, September 1803Book - 2000
From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, the second installment in the world-renowned Sharpe series, chronicling the rise of Richard Sharpe, a Private in His Majesty's Army at the siege of Seringapatam.
"The greatest writer of historical adventures today."
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.
From the critics
Violence: This is a war story, and the author doesn't pussyfoot around. People are shot, stabbed, crushed by elephants and decapitated by cannonballs.
Sexual Content: As usual, rape threats are leveled against the only female character in the book.
