It's a Sharpe book, and follows the standard pattern: a number of new characters are introduced; Sharpe strikes up an instant dislike for some of them; all is resolved in a huge battle in the last third of the book. I must have seen the TV adaptation of this, but I don't remember it being very similar to the novel at all. Recommended for those that like the series.
