I like the 'Richard Sharpe,' adventures series, a fiction TV movie made from the fiction based books written by Bernard Cornwell. on the Napoleonic Wars. I was wondering if other here are fans and/or enjoyed the TV Series and/or books. :D

The show launched the career of Sean Bean...a very good actor.

I've read (I think) most, if not all, of the books. Also watched the BBC series. Good reads with some fairly picturesque accounts of Infantry combat at the time.

Read all the books, seen all the movies. Books are better, but the movies are still very good. They work hard to be accurate.

Both Sharps as well as Hornblower.

I had a Brit roommate that turned me on to the Sharpe's series, great books. Never seen the TV shows, but they sound interesting.
