Based on the novel by Bernard Cornwell, "Sharpe's Waterloo" brings maverick British officer Lt. Col. Richard Sharpe to his last fight against the French, in June of 1815.
I think as far as the "dickish superior with no idea about soldierin'" that Sharpe deals with throughout the series goes, the Prince of Orange is definitely the best one--he's not one dimensional, and despite that, his dick-ness outranks any superiors Sharpe had to deal with. Sharpe's obsession with Bonney is also fascinating, and it follows the historical battle with impressive pacing. It's no Bondarchuk's Waterloo when it comes to scale, but it's still a good conclusion to the TV series.
Paul Bettany does his best attempt to rip off Hugh Grant's Prince character from Blackadder in this quite excellent if not fictitious portrayal of Waterloo.
