Description

SHARPE’S TRIUMPH by Bernard Cornwell (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

When Sharpe is the sole survivor of a treacherous attack by an English officer who has defected to join India’s Mahratta horde, he pursues the turncoat deep into enemy territory to avenge his comrades.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Grammy®-nominated narrator, Frederick Davidson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“As usual, Davidson does an outstanding job narrating this vivid account of a soldier’s life in India. Cornwell has again revealed the gore and the glory of those times.” —Today’s Librarian

Since earning his sergeant stripes at the bloody siege of Seringapatam, Richard Sharpe has led a peaceful existence. But his easy life meets a brutal end when he is the sole survivor of a murderous attack by a cold-blooded English officer who has defected to join the mercenary forces of the Mahratta confederation in India.

Sharpe vows to avenge his comrades, even if he must pursue the turncoat to the ends of the continent. His quest takes him deep into enemy territory, where the accepted rules of engagement have been discarded and ever-shifting loyalties create an environment of dangerous uncertainty. The paths of treachery lead Sharpe’s company to join the army of Sir Arthur Wellesley, future Duke of Wellington, to take on the Mahratta horde. Sharpe must survive the carnage to tell the tale of one of the greatest battles of the century.
