Some fly to war. Some flee it. No one is safe.
When the British army is sent into Spain to help expel Napoleon's invaders, nothing goes as expected. Not for London newsman Sam Kerr, hunting a story that will win him the editor's chair, who instead nets one that could wreck his career.
Not for the Wakefield family, loyalist refugees from America seeking peace among people of their faith, who find war has followed them even here.
And certainly not for the British troops, whose mission of support turns into a fight for all their lives.
