Episode Summary

EDIT
Sharpe's Battle
AIRED:
September, 1813 In the Spanish hills, Sharpe and his men come across a scene of devastation in the town of Casa Antiga. The town has been sacked by the French commander, Brigadier-general Guy Loup and his 'Wolf Brigade'. Perkins rescues a young woman from two of Loup's soldiers and arrests them. Loup rides into town demanding his men be released, but Sharpe refuses and has them shot on the spot. Loup vows revenge. Back at camp, Wellington gives Sharpe command of the Royal Irish Company and orders him to knock them into shape. The Irish are inexperienced in war and soon start talking about a mutiny. Sharpe offers them three choices: to be slaughtered by the French, to be shot as deserters, or to stay and learn to fight. Sharpe's battle-hardened reputation wins them over. However, Sharpe soon faces betrayal by the Spanish partisan fighter, Dona Juanita de Elia, who is really a spy for Loup. The Riflemen soon find themselves fighting for their lives against terrible odds, and one of the Chosen Men falls in battle.moreless
