Summary

Summary

Trapped with his back to the sea, Major Richard Sharpe and a handful of men must stand against a battalion of French troops.

Winter, 1814 – The invasion of France is under way, and the British Navy has called upon the services of Major Richard Sharpe. Sharpe’s mission seemed simple: capture a small unguarded French coastal fort, cripple Napoleon’s supply lines, and retreat across the sea. But behind the lines, Sharpe’s old enemy, Pierre Ducos, awaits Sharpe’s arrival with a battalion of French soldiers and a vicious commanding general who keeps the scalps of his dead enemies as trophies.

Outmaneuvered by Ducos’ treachery and abandoned by his own navy, Sharpe has only two choices: to escape with the aid of the charming, unscrupulous American mercenary, Cornelius Killick, or die.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The novel’s true strength—beyond the tense drama of the combat scenes—lies in its skillful evocation of that era, the little touches of description and history that bring a way of life alive.” Washington Post Book World
“[Has] the same combination of thorough research and narrative drive that distinguished its predecessors. It is a gripping read.” Independent (London)
“Lots of derring-do. Sharpe is never dull.” Kirkus Reviews
