Read full description of the books Death is a Duty:June 1815, and Napoleon Bonaparte has returned from exile to plunge Europe into war once again.
Veteran soldier Regimental-Sergeant Major Adam Bannerman of the 42nd Foot, the Black Watch, momentarily watches the dawn light flicker over the city of Brussels, before joining his regiment with the rest of the Duke of Wellington's patchwork army of British, German and Netherland troops. Peace has been irrevocably shattered by the news that Bonaparte has already crossed the border into Belgium catching the allies unprepared. Wellington hurriedly orders his men, mostly raw recruits and some with dubious loyalty, south to battle their old enemy in what will truly be the clash of nations.
During the campaign, Bannerman uncovers a dark tale of murder, which could dishonour the regiment if it ever came to light. As the war draws to its bloody conclusion at Waterloo, Bannerman, in the midst of flame and powder smoke, must use his wits to survive not only the French assaults, but men on his own side who want him dead.
Blood will be spilt. Fate demands it.
