DVD: Sharpe's Rifles series

Sharpe's Rifles series

Sean Bean stars in the title role of Richard Sharpe in these adaptations of Bernard Cornwell's novels.  Set during the Napoleonic Wars, Richard Sharpe has risen through the ranks of Wellington’s army by his own merit and ambition. Full of action, adventure and romance and it made me curious to learn more about the Napoleanic wars.

I have watched 11 of the 15 available DVDs and I am looking forward to finishing the series.

Not quite as easy to stitch to as Jane Austen movies, but is set in the same era, which makes it stitching friendly for me.
