An accomplished second outing
6 February 2000 | by (Gloucester, England) – See all my reviews

In his second outing Sharpe is promoted captain, but can he keep this new rank? With a solid storyline about an incompetent regiment, bigoted colonel, and the quest for the titular Eagle, Sharpe excels in everything that makes this series - namely playing it fast and loose with rules, regulations and, it has to be said, women. Even the romantic interest retains the plausibility of the first episode, before the advent of the disastrous Jane.

An excellent performance by Sean Bean, ably supported by the Rifles, in particular Daragh O'Malley and Assumpta Serna, this is definitely a must see for any Sharpe fan, or indeed anybody interested in the Napoleonic Wars.
