Be prepared for scenes of great action & heroics
"I had a word with Sergeant Nolan, so I did, and said you weren't entirely bad unless you were crossed, and then youwere a proper devil. And I told him you had an Irish father, which might be true, might it not?""So I'm one of you now, am I?" Sharpe asked, amused."Oh no, sir, you're not handsome enough."
Soldier, hero, rogue the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles, whose green jacket he proudly wears.
