At last! I bridge the gap in the Indian years of Sharpe’s saga – and get to read about that first fated meeting between Sergeant Sharpe and Major-General Arthur Wellesley at the Battle of Assaye. A brilliant read, although I wish I’d got Sharpe’s Fortress still to come. Mind you, Martin tells me there is a TV special in the offing…. Sharpe’s Peril. Huzzah!
