- Andrew Bateman points out that Sharpe in 1809 ("Sharpe's Rifles") is
supposed to be inexperienced at command, whereas in the more recent
"prequels" he racks up more "experience" fighting Indians, Frenchies,
Spaniards, Danes, corrupt superior officers, good-looking blondes, etc.
than the sum total of "experience" some entire real regiments were ever
able to accumulate...
However, while Sharpe might lead with increasing confidence and aplomb
plenty of mere infantrymen in his pre-1809 campaigns, after that, he is
leading "riflemen", and understandably is somewhat out of his depth at
first - after all, we *all* know the Rifles are "special"...

Yep, they're "special", and I mean that in the Olympic way...
