Publisher's Summary

A band of renegades led by Sharpe's vicious mortal enemy, Obadiah Hakeswill, holds a group of British and French women hostage in a strategic mountain pass. On the other side of the pass, Napoleon's Grande Armie seeks to smash through and crash the British army in Portugal. Outnumbered and attacked from two sides, Sharpe must hold his ground or die in the attempt.


What the Critics Say

"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 Magazine)

All around terrific

Wonderful story [but make sure you read this series in order] with lots of good characters, action and plot. The reader [F. Davidson] is perfect for the story and takes the listener along with him. Definitely worth it.

Battle for Portugal

This is book 15 in the Richard Sharpe series. Frederick Davidson does a superb job narrating the story. In this book Cornwell applied a bit more fiction to events than in the other books in the series. The overall battles between Wellesley and Napoleon's army are true but the battle in this story is fiction as was the rescue of the hostages. The band of deserters made up of all the armies in the area was true. Cornwell is the master of battle scene and keeps you on the edge of your seat listening to the book. Great story.
