But the over-confident British soon learnt that their enemy was a formidable foe, who used the rough terrain considerably better than they did. Several bloody engagements decimated the company. But gradually Morgan mastered his fears, learnt to fight fast and ruthlessly, and facing dire conflicts he was going to be tested to his limits...
