Intrigue

The action takes place during the Great Northern War , in the vicinity of Poltava in Ukraine, where Swedes and Russians are brewing their weapons for a decisive battle. Two French duelists, the knight Charles de Breze and the Count de la Bouche, in punishment for having exceeded the royal edict prohibiting duels, are sent as emissaries and find themselves in the heart of the conflict. While the battle of Poltava seems imminent, each of them is attached to one of the two camps as an observer mandated by Louis XIV, but unprepared to evolve in such a hostile context, the two messengers will have to learn to tie alliances at the option of their meetings to hope to return to France 1 .
