This work follows the experiences of a young Scottish Highlander, Ronald Stuart, who enters the 92nd regiment of foot, the Gordon Highlanders as an ensign. He joins the division in Spain soon after and stays with Gordons for the rest of the Napoleonic Wars. The plot contains several amusing adventures of Stuart that include rescuing half of the noble ladies of Spain, dealing with problematic prisoners of the war, and trying to escape from his rival. Although the story is based on the Peninsular war, it is much more than a retelling of it from Stuart's perspective. Following a sentimental tone, Grant writes with energy, passion, and authority about his native country and its inhabitants. Grant's portrayal of Spain and Spaniards makes it more attractive as he presents such a balanced account of the Spanish people in the Peninsular War that not many British authors could during that time.
