Richard Sharpe, a former private in His Majesty's army who now commands a company of riflemen, finds himself fighting his old enemies, the French, at the extraordinary battle of Barossa in 1811.

Sharpe has been sent by the Duke of Wellington on a mission to Cadiz, now the capital of Spain, to rescue the British ambassador, who happens to be Wellington's brother, from a spot of undiplomatic trouble. The city has been blockaded by the French but is supported by the British from the sea. It contains a rare mix of pro- and anti-British Spaniards, diplomats, courtiers, adventurers, and spies.

Sharpe's mission - complicated, undercover, and political -turns out to be completely different from the one on which he was sent. It brings him through the besieging enemy army to triumph in the battle of Barossa, where the British, deserted by their allies, defeat an overwhelmingly stronger French force.

    " I love Sharpe's books, however, this one is not his best adventures. There seems to be a bit too much going on and the writing is oddly repetitive. Ah well. I did enjoy reading about Ensign Keogh, Sergeant Masterson and the Irishmen of the 87th. Faugh a ballagh! "

    " This is my least favorite Sharpe book, although it has my very favorite sentence. Go figure. "

    " I like the history. The scope of Sharpe's adventure is quite small when compared to Waterloo, but fun nonetheless. It seems that half, or perhaps more than half, the book is dedicated to fleshing out real historical characters in areas where Sharpe is not a consideration. "
