However, according to The Starbuck Chronicles, another series of Cornwell books, she outlives Sharpe. Cornwell wrote this installment at the request of the producers of the adaptation to depict a Spanish hero in a more favourable light.It is 1814, and the defeat of Napoleon seems imminent — if the well protected city of Toulouse can be conquered. Lyndon Davies as Rifleman Ben Perkins (1993–1995)– stabbed by O'Rourke in Sharpe's Battle and dies in Harper's arms; survives in the novels. Following the TV adaptation Cornwell has said his subsequent books were almost like a second Sharpe series. Jason Salkey as Rifleman, later Sergeant, Harris (1993–1997)– killed in battle in Sharpe's Waterloo; not at Waterloo in the novel and presumably survives. So, there will be no unpleasant conclusion at the end of each book that necessitates reading the next chronological book.

John Tams as Rifleman, later Sergeant, Daniel Hagman (1993–1997)– killed in battle in Sharpe's Waterloo.

In the books by Bernard Cornwell, Richard Sharpe is the British hero that defied odds and won battles during the Napoleonic Wars. It was following the success of the adaptation that Cornwell decided to continue writing more Sharpe books.
