Welcome to James Keane – card sharp and ladies’ man – and one of the finest soldiers of Wellington’s army. Keane – hot-tempered, a maverick, never quite accepted by his fellow officers – is in trouble for killing his man in a duel: An activity forbidden by Wellington. To avoid court martial, he takes on an unwelcome assignment: to form an ill-assorted bunch of reprobates into an elite unit capable of operating behind the lines. A nineteenth-century Dirty Dozen.

A shadow of the Bernard Cornwell Novels.
The narration, although well enunciated appears to have an under 12 Audience in mind.
The characters came across as wooden and two dimensional, again possibly because of the inflections and stilted way it was performed.
