Synopses & Reviews
Sharpe's mission seems 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 with a battalion of French soldiers and a vicious commanding general who keeps the scalps of his dead enemies as trophies.
