About this title

Synopsis:

It was Anthony Morgan's first time in battle, his first sight of a soldier dead on the ground beyond him, his first awareness of the sounds of battle as the shells burst above them, the drums sounded and men screamed. Morgan, a subaltern in the 95th's Grenadiers, was determined to prove himself and his camaraderie with his men, in particular his sergeant, brought him under suspicion. 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...
