Sharpe's Miracles: Fact or Fiction?

When reading about favourite characters we always tend to overlook the fact that they are supposed to be ordinary people, flesh and blood, like we all are. It's the same when watching a movie. Of course we know that the things that happen to our protagonists sometimes stretch our imaginations a little, something most of us don't have any problems with, but at times things happen in books or films which even the most gullible person can't get his head around. This also holds good for Sharpe. If all the things on this page had really happened to him, he would certainly be a superhero. Was he? Or was he just the kind of soldier Napoleon preferred to have at his side: lucky?
