Welcome to the Napoleonic Wars.
The year is 1809. It is May. Armies are on the move to fight battles that will decide the fate of nations.
Five months ago, the British were driven from the Peninsula, fighting every step of the way. But now... Now it is time to fight again.
Sir Arthur Wellesley is the last hope for the British army in Portugal. Can he take them from defeat to victory?
Four years ago, the British fleet defeated France and Spain in battle. In the hour of victory, their leader was killed. Britain gained control of the seas... or did she?
There are rumours that the French are rebuilding their broken fleet, wishing to rise again. Will they succeed?
This is a world at war. From battles at sea to skirmishes on land to the secret fact-finding missions of spies of both sides, there is danger at every turn. There is friendship and camaraderie, too. But the clouds are gathering.
