"Acclaimed actor Sean Bean (The Island, The Lord Of The Rings) stars in this action-packed series set in the midst of the desperate missions and battles of the Napoleonic Wars. Adapted from Bernard Cornwell's bestselling novels, Bean portrays maverick British officer Richard Sharpe who rises through the ranks of Wellington's army by his own daring deeds and ambition. Fast-moving, hard-hitting, Sharpe brings to the screen all the danger, romance and sheer spectacle of one of the bloodiest periods in English warfare."--Container.
