Summary :

Trapped with his back to the sea, Major Richard Sharpe and a handful of men must stand against a battalion of French troops.

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

Outmaneuvered by Ducos's treachery and abandoned by his own men, Sharpe has only two choices: to escape with the aid of the charming, unscrupulous American mercenery Cornelius Killick, or die.
