Summary
Only a year after its stunning victory at Talavera in July of 1809, Wellington's Peninsular army--vastly outnumbered, its coffers empty--is on the brink of collapse. The Spanish government has fallen, and the last Spanish armies have been crushed by the French. But Wellington has one hope left: in the dangerous Portuguese hills lies a fortune in gold, enough gold perhaps to turn the Peninsular War around. And he knows of one fighting man capable of stealing it: Captain Richard Sharpe of the South Essex Regiment
