Sharpe is stranded behind enemy lines, but he has Patrick Harper, his riflemen, and he has the assistance of a young, idealistic Portuguese officer.
When he is joined by the future Duke of Wellington they immediately mount a counter-attack and Sharpe, having been the hunted, becomes the hunter once more. Amidst the wreckage of a defeated army, in the storm-lashed hills of the Portuguese frontier, Sharpe takes his revenge. Soldier, hero, rogue - Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage.
He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.

However, his choice of accents for certain characters is sometimes perplexing. Sharpe himself, for example, born and bred in London, albeit with a temporary teenage relocation to Yorkshire, has a Yorkshire accent as thick as a doorstep of Hovis. On the other hand villainous Williamson from Leicestershire is attributed with a Cockney accent. Could this be yet another example of anti-Cockney stereotyping? A really enjoyable sharpe book with a great narrator.
