In 1777 Captain Jamie Skoyles is part of a British army intent on destroying the American rebels and ending their resistance once and for all. Under the command of General Burgoyne, a huge force sets out from Canada but it is soon handicapped by hot weather, debilitating disease and a series of costly military blunders. By the time they reach Saratoga for the decisive battle, they have been taught to respect their enemy.

Skoyles is a loyal career soldier but he plans to live in America after the war has been won, no matter which flag flies over it. Embroiled in a dangerous love affair with a woman betrothed to a fellow-officer, he also has a long-standing friendship with a key member of the rebel cause. In the heat of battle, his loyalties are put under severe pressure and he narrowly escapes death at the hands of his love rival.

Filled with action, tension and suspense, this is a stirring novel about a nation’s struggle for independence, blending fact and fiction to bring the battle of Saratoga back to life in the most striking way.
