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

Sharpe has been sent by Wellington on a mission to Cádiz, 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 citizens, 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 Barrosa, where the British, deserted by their allies, defeat an overwhelmingly stronger French force.

    " Not nearly as good as the original Sharpe books. Too much battles without Sharpe or any of his fury. "

    " Cornwell didn't even try with this one. Upon discovering a new Peninsular campaign battle, he contrives to get Sharpe there in the first half with a silly side plot (including a very token appearance of The Girl), before moving into the battle, which is also not up to his usual standard. Rated M for battle violence, occasional coarse language. 2.5/5 "
