Summary (From the publisher):

"Thirteen feet long it was, and a foot in diameter at the muzzle. It was an eighteen-pounder bronze gun, ornamented with blazonry and heraldic traceries... it weighed three tons."

Abandoned by the Spanish Army as it retreated from the French during the Peninsular War, the gun fell into the hands of a Spanish guerilla band. And it was then that its great adventure began. It became the hero of the ever-swelling force of Spanish irregulars, as it brought them victory after victory - as it destroyed the cream of Napoleon's troops and battered great fortresses into subjection...
