With acuracy and emotion, L’embuscade depicts the fight of a courageous and powerful woman, a wife and mother, to discover the truth.
A night in August. Cedric’s scent floats in the room. It’s been a month and a half since this special forces soldier left on his mission, just as it has been a month and a half that Clémence and their three boys have awaited his return.
Early in the morning, a military delegation rings the doorbell. Warrant Officer Cedric Delmas had been ambushed with five of his comrades.
Alongside other women, also wives of soldiers, Clémence finds herself plunged into the secret war waged by France in the Levant. Questions nag at her: what really happened during the attack? And why is the army keeping it secret?
