Summary

June 1815, and as Europe heads towards one of the most decisive battles in history, Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Sharpe finds himself on the personal staff of the Young Frog, Frederick, Prince of Orange, who has been given command of a large proportion of the Allied Forces. Frederick refuses to listen to Sharpe's scouting reports of an enormous French army marching towards Brussels with the lately returned Emperor Napoleon at its head, until it is nearly too late.
