During the Russian campaign of 1812, a battalion of former Spanish prisoners recruited to fight for Napoleon's army defects to side with the Russians. The Emperor believes the battalion's actions to be heroic and dispatches a cavalry unit to assist them. Using this historical event as the premise for this story, Arturo Perez-Reverte reveals a caustic and brutal vision of war, patriotism and anonymous acts of heroism in short, an entertainingly tragic outlook of the human condition.

Durante la campana de Rusia de 1812, en un combate adverso para las tropas napoleonicas, un batallon de antiguos prisioneros espanoles, enrolados a la fuerza en el ejercito frances, intenta desertar, pasandose a los rusos. El emperador interpreta este acto del batallon como una accion heroica y manda en su auxilio a una carga de caballeria.
A partir de este hecho real, Arturo Perez-Reverte desvela, con un sentido del humor especial y un tono entre divertido y tragico, una descarnada y mordaz vision de la guerra, el heroismo anonimo, el patriotismo, en definitiva, de la condicion humana.
