ADRIAN GOLDSWORTHY Run them Ashore
Spain, 1810. On land and sea, the British are fighting for their lives. As the fifth novel in acclaimed historian Adrian Goldsworthy’s Napoleonic series opens, British fortunes in the Peninsula War are at their lowest ebb. Lieutenant Hamish Williams of the 106th Foot is about to discover just how precarious the situation is, and the bloody sacrifices necessary to prevent total victory for the French. From the siege of Cádiz, to guerrilla warfare with the Spanish partisans and the desperate Battle of Barrosa, Williams finds himself wherever the fighting is at its fiercest – but will his courage and skill be enough defence against treachery from his own side? Adrian Goldsworthy’s books have sold more than a quarter of a million copies and been translated into more than a dozen languages.
