    "January 1830, and one of the hardest winters in memory. The prime minister, the Iron Duke, is resisting growing calls for parliamentary reform, provoking scenes of violent unrest in the countryside. Against this backdrop, Lieutenant-Colonel Matthew Hervey takes command of his regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons. His fears that things might be a little dull are dispelled by the everyday business of vexatious officers, difficult choices over which NCOs to promote and the incendiarists on the doorstep of the King himself. But it's when the Sixth are sent to Brussels for the 15th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo that the excitement really starts." -- Publisher's description

    Christmas 1826 finds Matthew Hervey of the 6th Light Dragoons alone and a prisoner. Captured by the Spanish, he is locked up in the notorious fortress of Badajoz, with little means of outside communication, his Prayer Book his only mental sustenance. He must escape, but as he lays his plans his thoughts return to 1812, when as a young cornet he was here with Wellington's Peninsular Army. Having survived the terrible retreat to Corunna, Hervey and the Sixth had gone on to endure three more years of fighting - only to be stalled at Badajoz... Badajoz: a fortress of huge strategic importance, where two sieges had already failed, and where French resistance was at its bloodiest. No one - from the Duke of Wellington to the most lowly cornet - was in any doubt that in order to defeat Napoleon they must carry the day. As the young Hervey and his comrades prepared for the third and final attack on the fortress, the only options left were victory... or death. What Hervey cannot know, as he paces his prison cell fourteen years later, is that in Lisbon, his close friends - including the beautiful Isabella Delgado - are rushing to his aid. The escape they plan is audacious in the extreme
