Description

Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and a detachment of riflemen join the assault of a strong French force holding the Holy City of Santiago de Compostela.

Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and a detachment of Riflemen are cut off from the rest of the army and surrounded.

Their only hope of escape is to accept the help of the Spanish, but this assistance comes at a price: to join the assault on the holy city of Santiago de Compostela, held by a strong French force.

There is little Sharpe would enjoy more. 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.
