Too Few for Drums During the bloody carnage of the Peninsular Wars against Napoleon, British ensign Keith Graham and his squad become separated from their company. Alone behind French lines, the nine soldiers must work their way through a dangerous landscape to reunite with the British army. And then they are joined by Gwyneth, the common-law wife of a dead soldier—a woman who understands war and the art of survival. Together the little band faces impossible odds, and Graham must grow from a naïve young officer to a resourceful battle-hardened leader if they are to stay alive.

"A tough and convincing story. . . . [Delderfield] marches his tattered troopers through hardship and hellfire, across a wild and ravaged landscape, sparing us any fairytales about the joys of battle en route." --The New York Times Book Review
