The Exploits of Brigadier GerardIn Gerard, Conan Doyle brough to life a really memorable and living character: a vain, brave French brigadier with an amusing touch of stupidity whose adventures in the Napoleaonic Wars have delighted readers ever since he first charged onto the scene.
He is brash and boastful in relating his exploits with his beloved hussars during twenty years of fighting. Berlin, Naples, Vienna, Madrid, Lisbon, Moscow - we stabled our horses in them all. This delightfully flamboyant, supremely brave character carries the reader through twelve campaigns, across the length and breadth of Europe, in a series of breathtaking escapades. All the excitement of this colourful period is captured in the very best of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's many historical creations.
