Duration: 11 hours 14 minutes
A band of renegades led by Sharpe's vicious mortal enemy, Obadiah Hakeswill, is holding hostage a group of British and French women at a strategic mountain pass. On the other side of the pass, Napoleon's Grande Arm'e seeks to smash through and crush the British army in Portugal. Outnumbered and attacked from two sides, Sharpe must hold his ground or die in the attempt.
'Frederick Davidson performs superbly. The hardness and hauteur of his syllable-precise delivery render well the rigid hierarchies and varied personalities of military life. For fans of the series, Davidson's readings may be definitive.''AudioFile
