Richard Sharpe and the Bussaco Campaign, 1811

It is 1810 and the French are making yet another attempt to invade Portugal. Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by Sir Arthur Wellesley orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe.

But Sharpe is in trouble. His job is under threat and, with enemies on every side, he has new opposition from a Portugese warlord against whom he wages a private war, fought through the burining, pillaged streets of Coimbra.

Sharpe's Escape begins on the great, gaudy ridge of Bussaco where a joint British and Portugese army meest Marshal Massena's crack troops. It finishes at Torres Verdras where the French hopes of occupying Portugal quickly die.
