Later that night, the Spaniard is murdered and the next day Sharpe is arrested for his murder. Witnesses say Sharpe was the killer and he is sentenced to death. However, things are not what they seem.

Captain Sharpe is ordered to deliver the women's ransom, much to the disgust of Sir Augustus Farthingdale. Sharpe and Harper enter the convent where the women are held and are confronted by two French officers. Sharpe learns that one of the officers is the husband of Sarah Dubreton and they are on the same mission. To Sharpe's dismay, he learns that Hakeswill is a leader of the renegades and has increased the ransom price, giving Sharpe five days to come up with the extra money, or the women will be raped. Nairn discovers that the French intend to invade Portugal from Adrados and decides to thwart the plan. Sharpe is promoted to major and given command of the 60th Rifles in order to secure the safety of the women and prevent the French from taking the town.

This first attack is known as the Forlorn Hope, as chances of survival are remote, however survivors are given their reward in money or rank.

    Spain 1809

    Colonel Sir Henry Simmerson arrives with his regiment, the South Essex, and Wellesley orders the South Essex to blow up a bridge at Valdelacasa. Aware that Simmerson is incompetent, Wellesley orders Sharpe to see that the mission is a success, in exchange for a promotion to captain. Simmerson is furious to learn that Sharpe is not a gentleman and was raised from the ranks. He orders Sharpe to train his men to fire three rounds a minute by nightfall, or they will be flogged. Sharpe and Harper succeed, but this infuriates Simmerson even more. Sharpe has made an enemy. The following day, Simmerson orders Captain Lennox to lead the South Essex across the bridge and chase off a small French patrol. However, a large body of French cavalry appears and the men of the South Essex panic and flee across the bridge. As the French cavalry butcher them, Sharpe leads his Chosen Men to the rescue, unaware that Simmerson has ordered the bridge to be blown, so they are trapped on the wrong side. The French capture the King's Colours of the South Essex. The dying Lennox urges Sharpe to avenge this insult by capturing a French imperial eagle. A furious Wellesley disbands the South Essex and promotes Sharpe to Captain. Sharpe is later warned that if Simmerson can't damage Wellesley, he will do his best to strip Sharpe of his promotion. Sharpe realises that the only way he can hold his own is by capturing the eagle.moreless
