After the battle of Talavera, while the wounded are still being carried into the hospital, Countess Josephina informs Sharpe that London has created Wellesley Lord Wellington as a result of his victory. There is no way that London could have been informed of the results of the battle so quickly, let alone returned word of Wellesley's elevation. See more »

Quotes

[Sharpe has challenged Berry to a duel after he and Gibbons have raped and flogged Josefina]

A SUPERB WAR DRAMA
8 May 2000 | by (Redcar, England) – See all my reviews

This installment in the career on Richard Sharpe is possibly the best of the series.

It is a mix of terrible leadership, outstanding battle scenes, and bitter rivalry between officers.

Sean Bean is perfect as Sharpe, but this film lacks the beauty of Elizabeth Hurley, who appeared in Sharpe's Enemy, later in the series.
