Overview

Historical novel, set in India in the 18th century. According to Wikipedia: "Sultan Fateh Ali Tippu, also known as the 'Tiger of Mysore' (November 20, 1750, Devanahalli ? May 4, 1799, Srirangapattana), was ... the de facto ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore from the time of his father's death in 1782 until his own demise in 1799." The Preface begins: "While some of our wars in India are open to the charge that they were undertaken on slight provocation, and were forced on by us in order that we might have an excuse for annexation, our struggle with Tippoo Saib was, on the other hand, marked by a long endurance of wrong, and a toleration of abominable cruelties perpetrated upon Englishmen and our native allies. Hyder Ali was a conqueror of the true Eastern type.
He was ambitious in the extreme. He dreamed of becoming the Lord of the whole of Southern India. He was an able leader, and, though ruthless where it was his policy to strike terror, he was not cruel from choice." According to Wikipedia: "George Alfred Henty (8 December 1832 - 16 November 1902), referred to as G. A. Henty, was a prolific English novelist, special correspondent, and Imperialist born in Trumpington, Cambridgeshire, England. He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century. His works include Out on the Pampas (1871), The Young Buglers (1880), With Clive in India (1884) and Wulf the Saxon (1895)."

    I couldn't put this one down!

    "The Tiger Of Mysore" Takes place in India during The Third Anglo-Mysore War of 1789-1792 And, as is the case of most Of Henty's books, focuses on the adventures of a teenage boy during those events. In this book, Dick Holland and his Mother set out to discover the fate of Dick's Father, a ship's Captain who was shipwrecked and taken prisoner by Tipu sultan (Tippoo Sahib), AKA The Tiger of Mysore.

    I found this book to be very exciting and educational and is probably the best historical fiction I've ever read. I recommend it to any teenager looking for a good, wholesome book to read. Here are the pros and cons for this E-book:

    Pros:

    Affordable (especially for an E-book!)

    Exciting,

    Historical,

    Clean.


    Cons:

    NONE

    If you read this book, I also recommend "At the point of the bayonet"
    both stories happening at similar times, and tying together some events.

    Thank you for reading my review! I hope you found it helpful and will read this great book.
