9780007235049: Sharpe's Tiger

Sharpe’s Tiger is the first in the multivolume historical fiction series featuring Richard Sharpe. In 1799, as the British Army fights its way through India toward a diabolical trap, the young and illiterate private Richard Sharpe must battle both man and beast behind enemy lines, in an attempt to push the ruthless Tippoo of Mysore from his throne and drive his French allies out of India. Posing as a deserter, Sharpe must penetrate into the Tippoo’s city and make contact with a Scottish spy being held prisoner there. Success will mean winning his sergeant stripes; failure, being turned over to the Tippoo’s brutal executioners—or his man-eating tigers. Picking his way through an exotic and alien world, he knows that one slip will mean disaster as Sharpe learns that he must fight his old comrades in order to save his own neck. Along the way, he keeps an eye out for Mysore’s beautiful prostitutes, any stray loot he can get his hands on, and the chance to learn his ABCs. But when the furious British assault on the city begins, Sharpe must fight with the fierceness and agility of a tiger himself to foil the Tippoo’s well-set trap—and to keep from being killed by his own side.

From the Back Cover:

"It was a bloody awful shot," Sharpe said.
"My mother could lay a gun better than that."
"I didn't think you had a mother," Private Garrard said.
"Everyone's got a mother, Tom."
"Not Sergeant Hakeswill," Garrard said, then spat a mix of dust
and spittle. . . . "Hakeswill was spawned of the devil."

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.
