The idea for Chase the Devil came about by my desire to write a story about the peninsular war between Britain and France and features the battle at Salamanca in Spain in 1812. Although factually correct in most part, I wanted to introduce some fictional characters engaged in a battle that may have taken place in the back-ground and therefore introduced Captain Robert Lockhart of the 5th of Foot the Northumberland Regiment, and the French officer, Major Philippi Duval, known to his men as (The devil.) French General Marshal Augusta Marmont is afraid Lord Wellington is about to break out of Salamanca into Spain and sets a trap for him by reducing the strength of his right flank therefore inviting Wellington to attack at that point. Wellington suspects a trap has been laid for him behind Marmont’s lines and dispatches Robert and a small band of men to investigate. Robert discovers the trap set by Major Philippi Duval but is too late to inform Wellington and decided to take action. Meanwhile the battle at Salamanca has started and Wellington has started his push into Spain, now it is up to Robert and his men to save the day. Major Duval, (the devil) escapes capture but in doing so exposes the horrific inhuman crimes of torcher and death he has inflicted upon his British and civilians prisoners. Horrified by what he has seen and heard Robert sets out across Spain in pursuit of Duval, a journey that will eventually take him back to Canada. Yours faithfully John Madderson.
