The Tiger of Mysore
A Story of the War with Tippoo Sahib
By: G. A. Henty (1896)

Dick Holland, whose father is supposed to be a captive of Tippoo Sahib, goes to India to help him escape. He joins the army under Lord Cornwallis, and takes part in the campaign against Tippoo. Afterwards, he assumes a disguise, enters Seringapatam, the capital of Mysore, rescues Tippoo's harem from a tiger, and is appointed to high office by the tyrant. In this capacity Dick visits the hill fortresses, still in search of his father, and at last he discovers him in the great stronghold of Savandroog. The hazardous rescue through the enemy's country is at length accomplished, and the young fellow's dangerous mission is done.
