Beat the Drums Slowly
Sir John Moore is forced to retreat to Corunna. Faced with appalling weather, and pursued by an overwhelming French army led by Napoleon himself, the very survival of Britain's army is at stake. For the newly promoted Hamish Williams, the retreat turns into an unexpectedly personal drama. Separated from the rest of the army in the initial chaos, he chances upon another fugitive, Jane MacAndrews, the daughter of his commanding officer and the woman he is desperately in love with. As the pair battle the elements and the pursuing French, the strict boundaries of their social relationship are tested to the limit with surprising results.
