Another treat of historical fiction --- this time lots of fiction and relatively little historical accuracy.
The action takes place in the border country between Spain and Portugal. Sharpe has been ordered to lead a new Rocket Cavalry into maneouvers when he accidentally encounters a much larger force of French troops. Against all odds, under the brave leadership of Sharpe, the outnembered Englich are able to hold out against the much larger French forces until he is finally relieved by the British-Spanish force.
As always: blood; guts; gore and bravery --- the expected and normal hallmarks of Cornwell's Sharpe novels.
