It is 1811 and the war seemed lost. All Spain has fallen to the French, except for Cadiz which is now the Spanish capital and is under siege. Wellington and his British Army are in Portugal, waiting for the war to begin again. Sharpe and his company are part of a small expeditionary force sent to break a bridge across the River Guadiana.
