The war has ended but Jane,wearying of army life,is tricked by a greedy friend into returning to London and spending her husband's money. Meanwhile Sharpe is set up by defeated Major Ducos and charged with stealing the French imperial treasure. He is put on trial but escapes with Harper and Fredrickson and sets out to find the honest Major Maillot who was coerced into signing the false accusation. Ducos's men have Maillot shot but his widowed sister Lucille hides Sharpe whilst Fredrickson tracks down former foe General Calvet. Calvet allies with Sharpe to hunt down Ducos and regain the treasure. But Jane,now foolishly involved with fortune hunter Rossendale,may be harder to recapture. Written by

Did You Know?
In both the written prologue, and the dialog, the king of France who is about to take the throne is referred to as "Louis Phillippe". It should actually be Louis XVIII, the brother of the executed Louis XVI. "Louis Phillippe" is their cousin, of the house of Orleans, who comes to the throne in 1830, some sixteen years after this movie. See more
