Sharpe's Rifles TV Movie


Series Description
    


Sharpe's Rifles was just the first in a series of war action movies made for British television. They follow the career of Richard Sharpe who rose from the rank of Sergeant to Lieutenant Colonel in the English army during the early 1800s. He did this during a time when nearly all of the officers were from the gentry class or the royals. Sharpe made officer by his amazing devotion to duty and his devout heroism! And saving Lord Wellinton's life didn't hurt any either! Sharpe's team of crack rifleman are sent on the most dangerous assignments ... the ones that only they can conquer! This is a jewel of a series that's remained lost to most American viewers. Not the typical low-budget British production, the Sharpe movies contain superb acting, characters you fall in love with, and one terrific soundtrack! They're action, adventure, romance, and drama all wrapped up in one neat package.

O'er the Fields, and O'er the Maine
Thru Flanders Portugal, and Spain,
King George commands, and we obey.
O'er the hills and far away
