Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Bernard Cornwell, the first exciting adventure 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.” (Washington Post)

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.

Give us Farley!

I love the Sharpe novels. Farley is great as the narrator.

Hopefully they make all the Farley versions available in the US.

fast forward a several hundred years for Uthred Ii

hats off to the author, many authors can write compelling action and many can write character driven novels on a grand scale, but in my opinion to do so without creating mundane prose while building that foundation is art. If creating compelling heroes is a gift creating compelling villains is in my opinion more difficult. This book is filled with that same inspiration that makes lost kingdom a got to novel - the hero is better than those he surrounds himself, nobility among cowards and crooks, a fastidious fighter who must contend with the rancor of rank and the punitive nature of people.

cannot wait for the x the next installment. Netflix, hulu, and prime- step up because this will make a great work for the 16:9 screen.
