This dramatic portrayal of the extraordinary career of British general Sir John Moore begins with his first taste of action against the rebels in America, through his early personal triumphs against the French at Corsica, Holland and Egypt. It continues with the controversy over his involvement in dangerous relationships with authorities in Corsica, Sicily and Sweden, foreshadowing the tragic role he would play in the Peninsular War, with the desperate retreat to Corunna and the last heroic stand against Napoleon’s armies.
