Overview

A year after the war at Talavera, Wellington's army, outnumbered and out of money, is on the verge of collapse.

A series of battles lead him through Portugal to the fortress town of Almeida, where he is trapped. But Sharpe is determined to succeed--even if it means turning against his own side.

it was very enjoyable a great read you become the hero and at times can't bear to turn the page in fear that Sharpe is killed. that is the beauty of these books. Just as you feel that there is no way out Sharpe pulls another brillient stunt. Fantastic.
