Sharpe's Tiger () About book: I've read and re-read the Sharpe series countless times. For me, they're arguably one of the finest collections of historical 4/5(1). It tracks the progress of the British Army during the infamous Napoleonic Wars. It traces the journey of Sharpe who joins as a private in the 33rd Regiment. He moves up the ladder and becomes a sergeant in the book Sharpe’s Tiger. After many twists and turns Richard Sharpe eventually becomes a Lieutenant Colonel in the book Sharpe’s Waterloo. If you intend to read the whole series, then starting with Sharpe's Tiger is a good idea because you can then go through in order as Sharpe grows. But if you want to see if you like the books, or if you want to jump into the Napoleonic Wars, then we actually recommend Sharpe's Eagle. It's a strong story and it's quintessential Cornwell.
