Portugal 1813. A band of deserters, including Sharpe's old enemy, Obadiah Hakeswill, have captured two women, one the wife of a high-ranking English officer, and are holding them hostage for ransom. Sharpe is given the 60th Rifles and a Rocket troop, as well as his majority to rescue the women. But while Sharpe may be able to deal with his old enemy, he has yet to face a newer threat, the French Major Duclos.

Especially obvious in the scene where Sharpe meets Captain Fredrickson for the first time is a patch on Sharpe's left arm saying "VS" in a wreath. This stands for Valiant Stormer and was a patch awarded to those soldiers and officers who had survived being part of a Forlorn Hope during a siege attack, as Sharpe had been in Sharpe's Company See more
