Sharpe's Honour Reviews
What was interesting was how the Rifles came into it. Harper had become Sharpe‚(TM)s confidante and went with him, leaving his pregnant partner Ramona at home. This allowed the 4 members of the Chosen Men to take centre stage. The best shooter, and eldest Rifle, Hagman was in charge of delivering the baby, with the intellectual Perkins offering suggestions, and the young Perkins and laddish Cooper stayed at their side. It really helped develop the idea that they were all good friends and equels, Sharpe and his 5 Chosen Men.
Pierre Ducos makes an interesting bad guy, just as sly as Hakeswill in a way, but a French enemy with an army behind him, and Napoleon‚(TM)s ear next to him, as opposed to the singular Hakeswill, this allows the idea of a proper enemy, and Ducos was very good.
