Review: Sharpe’s Triumph

By pcurd

Sharpe's Triumph
Sharpe’s Triumph by Bernard Cornwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a lot shorter than Sharpe’s Tiger but was no less of a good story. The characters remain great, and Sharpe’s life is brought into ever greater focus.

Wellesley gets a much large role in this story as well which was very pleasing. He is one of the best characters, of course!

I am keen to continue with each of these stories but I have little to add to my review of Sharpe’s Tiger – the locations are excellently detailed, the battles are vivid, and the pain and suffering the soldiery experience is clear and well described.
