Abstract

The British television series Sharpe, directed by Tom Clegg, follows an English officer during the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815). Sergeant Richard Sharpe, played by Sean Bean, receives a promotion to lieutenant and oversees the Chosen Men of the 95th Rifles of the British Army, an elite group of sharp shooters who served as an alternative to traditional warfare. As war continues, Sharpe battles against class politics in the British Army and pursues romance with different women. The television series in seven seasons with two to three films each is based on the Sharpe novel series by Bernhard Cornwell published between 1997 and 2021. The series originally ran from 1993 to 1997. Two additional episodes premiered in 2006 and 2008.
