Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Conan Doyle is another one of those guys who wrote a ton of stuff but who is remembered now only for his Holmes/Watson mysteries. The 17 stories collected here follow the title character, a swaggering soldier in Napoleon's army famous for his bravery on the field of battle and his romantic forays with women. If historical adventure circulates in your library, throw this into the mix. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
A collection of 17 works of the great storyteller reprinted from the 1908 McClure Co. edition. These horror stories manifest the skill and ingenuity of the Holmes canon. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    arthur conan doyle---what a writer!!

    i chose this book because of the author--sir arthur conan doyle---before he was a Sir.-having read just his Sherlock books, i wanted to see what his other books could be like, and this one is a definite winner.---composed to a short story per chapter, this book tells of the exploits of brigadier general gerard---a young, dashing, and thoroughly entertaining soldier during the time of Napoleon. this book is great escapism. it reminds me of The Three Muskateers.it's highly recommened for anyone who is tired of modern-day times.

    A surprise gem

    Quirky, quippy set of tales about a bumbling but loveable veteran of Napolean's elite cavalry, by the father of Sherlock Holmes
