June 1815, and Napoleon Bonaparte has returned from exile to plunge Europe into war once again. Veteran soldier Regimental-Sergeant Major Adam Bannerman of the 42nd Foot, the Black Watch, momentarily watches the dawn light flicker over Brussels, until the peace is inexorably shattered by the news that Bonaparte has crossed the border into Belgium. The Duke of Wellington's patchwork army of British, German and Netherlands is hurriedly sent south to battle their old enemy in what will truly be the clash of nations. During the campaign, Bannerman uncovers a dark tale of murder, which could dishonour the regiment if it ever came to light. As the war draws to its bloody conclusion at Waterloo, Bannerman must use his wits to survive not only the French assaults, but men on his own side who want him dead. Blood will be spilt. Fate demands it. Death is a Duty is the fifth novella in the Soldier Chronicles exciting new historical series.
