The dashing Brigadier Etienne Gerard gallops through the Napoleonic campaigns on secret missions for his beloved Emperor and his country. He encounters danger and hair-breadth escapes but never loses his bravado, his eye for a pretty girl, or his enormous vanity. Gerard is Conan Doyle’s most lovable character. At times hilarious, at times touching, these stories are amongst Conan Doyle’s most popular.
Having killed off Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle began a new series of tales on a very different theme. He had intended to write a serious novel about the Napoleonic era, examining the Emperor. Instead he created a comic masterpiece. The Brigadier's adventures, long established in the affections of Conan Doyle's admirers, are sure to find a new generation of devotees.
