Publisher's Summary

Ensign Richard Sharpe, newly made an officer, wishes he had stayed a sergeant after he is put in terrible danger by Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill at the impregnable Gawilghur's ravine.
To regain his confidence and his authority, Sharpe will fight as he has never fought before.
Soldier, hero, rogue - Sharpe is 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.


What the Critics Say

"Sharpe and his creator are national treasures." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." (Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched."(Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

Love it

This was the best Sharpe story yet in my opinion. I really am enjoying the series notwithstanding that I am not a Great War buff nor have any special interest in that time period in India. The story is great and the historical references have made me curious and interested in the time and setting. Can't wait to start the next one.

Anti gun, but still love Cornwell

Don't understand how I can love this author so much because his books are so violent. Perhaps that violence is in all of us, but just under the surface, hidden away, but by God I love Bernard Cornwell. I love everything he has ever written and am on my second and third listens and/ or reads of each book. His heroes are real heroes. His historical research is marvelous, and he is a wonderful writer. I have learned so much about guns, long bows, artillery and long boats. For the lover of historical fiction, it doesn't get much better than this.
