A group of British soldiers from varying backgrounds are caught behind enemy lines during the Napoleonic Wars. During their struggles to rejoin the British army they encounter a camp follower who is a seasoned campaigner. One does not have to be a fan of military fiction to enjoy this novel that is more about character than derring-do.
