Reading Sharpe... someone has to. And on the cover there's a pile of dead frenchmen (hurrah!) and a smaller pile of dead redcoats (not hurrah)(no greenjackets - they appear to be bulletproof). So it got me thinking... the Brits ++ love a scrap, which has a downside. I couldn't even begin to think how many soldiers have been lost in the last 2 centuries. Anyone care to guess... or does anyone actually know?
